Our pledge to support the ‘Time To Change’ movement

Published: 06-11-2019

We are proud to announce that we are supporting the Time to Change Employer Pledge, which aims to change the way people think and act about mental health in the workplace.

With one in four British workers affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year, we will be implementing action plans to help our employees open up about mental health issues.

At Worcester Bosch we have over 200 Mental Health Champions across all levels and departments within the organisation, which amounts to over 10% of our workforce.   

All of us will be working together to raise awareness about the importance of mental health. Some of the ways we will be doing this is by publicising mental health national days such as Time to Talk, World Mental Health Day and Mental Health Awareness Week along with holding dedicated events with speakers addressing the subject.

Carl Arntzen, has said: “We understand the importance of raising awareness around mental health within all levels of our organisation. By pledging our support to the Time to Change movement we are making further steps towards ensuring all our employees feel comfortable both within work and within themselves, and that mental health awareness remains a top priority within Worcester Bosch.”

Jo Loughran, Director of Time to Change said “With nine in ten of those who experience mental health problems facing stigma and discrimination as a result, it’s great that Worcester Bosch are pledging to support their employees by encouraging them to speak openly about their mental health and ensuring a workplace culture where it is safe to do so.”
