Ricoh UK has launched the Mental Health at Work Commitment (MHAWC). Endorsed by Business in the Community and Mind, the MHAWC is a set of actions for organisations to follow in order to improve and support the mental health of their people.
The latest pledge reinforces the company’s ongoing efforts and initiatives to create a work culture which actively promotes and supports the health and wellbeing of all employees. An action plan is being developed and put in place to build on the company’s existing programmes, with a particular focus on the six standards which underpin the MHAWC.
The action plan includes provision of mental health awareness training for all managers; creation of a wellbeing dashboard; and a job structure and organisation design review to understand whether any adjustments are needed to support employees’ wellbeing.
