Lockdown to Looking Forward: Develop Resilience – Creating a culture where people thrive: Mike Thompson - Gen. Healthy Minds / SustainHR



Welcome from the APS


Lockdown to Looking Forward: Develop Resilience


Q&A Session



This session will help to explore how employers can develop an effective wellbeing framework for apprentices, graduates and staff in their early career. Through exploring a case study we will look at how one company has taken steps to look after and develop the mental health and wellbeing of their colleagues. We will provide practical advice on the steps you can take to develop individual wellbeing and also how you can create organisational culture needed for people to thrive. We will examine what success looks like and how to measure it.

We will examine and de-mystify some of the key topics around mental health including how to develop resilience, make stress a friend and the links between physical wellbeing and mental health.


Key takeaways:

  • How to develop a strategic wellbeing framework for early careers
  • Understanding of the key drivers of good mental health
  • Practical advice on how to develop resilience and good mental health amongst your early career workforce
