Worcester Bosch pledges support to ‘Time to Change’ movement

Published: 7 November 2019 - Neil Mead
 

Worcester Bosch has announced its support to 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, the UK’s leading boiler manufacturer will be implementing action plans that help employees open up about mental health issues.

Worcester Bosch already has over 200 Mental Health Champions across all levels and departments within the organisation, which amounts to over 10% of its workforce. 

The company, which is headquartered in Worcester and has a further manufacturing site in Clay Cross, Derbyshire, will raise awareness about the importance of mental health by publicising mental health national days such as Time to Talk, World Mental Health Day and Mental Health Awareness Week along with dedicated events with speakers addressing the subject.

Carl Arntzen, CEO Worcester Bosch, 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.”
