IoD Mental Health Hub Launched

Date: 7 Mar 2017

The IoD (Institute of Directors) has created a 'Mental Health Hub' that aims to help businesses promote good mental health within the workplace. The hub also provides information and advice for managers and workplace leaders that will help spot the signs of mental health problems and know how to help.

The hub is full of helpful advice, best practice and useful resources. It has many examples of experiences from business leaders as to how they look after their own mental health and that of their employees.

Ginsters

A reduction in cost of advertising and agency fees attest to the fact fewer people leave the company and that candidates now approach Ginsters direct as they are seen as an employer of choice.  Number of applicants in 2005 = 2481, in 2006 = 3641 and in 2008 = 3764.  Advertising costs reduced from £50,743 in 2005 to £33,805 in 2007 and £18,126 in 2008.
