WE LIVE AND WORK IN A MAD WORLD
In our “mad world”, where the workplace is evolving faster than ever before, the need to address mental health and wellbeing is increasingly a top priority for business leaders. A proactive approach to caring for the body and the mind benefits everyone. It not only makes sense on a human level – poor mental health ultimately costs employers billions in productivity and related expenses.
With today’s and tomorrow’s top talent demanding better support in the workplace and innovative strategies to address mental health and wellbeing, employers must be prepared to redefine workplace culture and adopt solutions.
“The workplace is a force for good in mental wellbeing… Business has to play its part and be conﬁdent about playing its part”
Sir Ian Cheshire, Chairman, Barclays UK and Campaign Chair, Heads Together in his keynote address at the Mad World Summit 2018
Business leaders are in a unique position to drive systemic change. However, many are struggling to put in place strategies that will have a sustainable impact across their organisation.
Building on the impact of the inaugural Mad World Summit, the 2019 event featured fresh insights – both from leaders in established industries and from bold disruptors who are setting a new benchmark for company culture. Through the lens of mental health, they showcased tangible whole-person solutions – blending best-practice case studies – from the UK and beyond – with the most exciting ideas driving innovation.
