At Morgan we recognise the importance of our people, and we strive to support their wellbeing.
We have built up a grass-roots wellbeing programme called ‘Better You, Better Life’, which supports our purpose of improving quality of life. In a similar way to our Morgan safety week, the programme runs activities across the Group to promote healthy choices and encourages our people to take part.
In October each year we run our mental health awareness month, supporting our people to make better, healthier choices. We believe that good mental health is as important as good physical health and wellbeing. We therefore provide our people with resources and links to charities and organisations across the globe that can support them. We offer managers and colleagues practical tips on communicating with employees with mental health issues, and we are backing a campaign to help break down the stigma of asking for help at work.
We have an employee assistance programme in the UK and US that our people can contact, and we are looking at similar schemes in other locations; alongside trained mental health first-aiders on our sites.
