Welcome to the October issue of Corporate Vision magazine. A monthly publication dedicated to delivering the latest insight and news from across the corporate landscape.
Tuesday 10th October saw World Mental Health Day, highlighting the importance of taking mental health seriously and aiming to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness. 1 in 8 people around the world experience a mental health problem of some kind – and it’s crucial that employers are equipped to support their employees properly when it comes to their mental wellbeing.
As such, employee benefits platform, Zest’s recent research identifies how individuals now prioritise having access to wellbeing benefits when choosing a new employer – and businesses are at risk of losing out on top talent if they don’t invest. Also among the findings is how there has been an increase in the implementation of a Head of Wellbeing within businesses to provide a listening ear and support to those team members who need it. We learn more on page 13.
Elsewhere in this issue, we are, as always, delighted to be shining a light on our award-winning businesses, from an ESG risk and compliance solutions provider in Australia; to an English and Dutch language school in the Netherlands; to a fertility care centre in North America. We discover how each of these organisations are making a positive impact in their own way.
I hope you enjoy perusing this issue and wish you a wonderful month ahead. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you back again soon for the November edition of Corporate Vision.
