Wellbeing Series 1: Managing stress and mental health in the post-pandemic workplace |Newcastle: 22 June 2022

Before the pandemic, workplace burnout was recognised by the World Health Organisation as an occupational phenomenon. 745,000 deaths were attributed to overwork across the globe – a 29% increase from 2000 to 2016.

Since March 2020, the wide ranging effects of the pandemic and impact on mental health has led to significant increases in reports of depression and anxiety. This leaves many organisations considering, ‘are we doing enough to support wellbeing and mental health in the workplace?’

Join Partners Emma Bowens and Sarah George at this first event in our Wellbeing Series, where we will:

  • Outline your health & safety duties towards employees
  • Discuss the challenges for employee wellbeing that have arisen from new ways of working
  • Explore practical solutions for workplace wellbeing from our experience, advising organisations across a range of sectors.


We are delighted to be joined at this event by our “guest speaker from industry” Kevin Rennex from North East based Home Group, rated as 5th best place to work, and 9th in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing (Super Large Organisations) 2022.

Kevin is a Mental Health First Aider and leads on Home Group’s wellbeing initiatives and is keen to share the Home Group experience.

This session is aimed at H&S and HR professionals and will also be beneficial for line managers with particular responsibility for staff health and wellbeing.
