Melrose Education are providing free access to the Headspace app for all employees and have launched a Wellbeing Fund for all employees, as well as implementing Mental Health First Aid training for their Senior Management Teams.
The Headspace app describes itself as “meditation made simple”. Meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more and even sleep better. The app is designed to teach people the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness in just a few minutes a day.
The newly launched Wellbeing Fund means Melrose employees can access annual support to assist with studying, learning a new skill or hobby, or supporting their well-being or personal development.
In May this year, the company also invested in training all their Senior Management Teams in Mental Health First Aid. This training seeks to create a positive workplace wellbeing culture and supports organisations to really look after the mental health of their employees.
These initiatives are all part of the Company’s ‘Wellbeing Strategy’, planned for full launch and implementation in 2023.
