THEIR CORE VALUES
#EMPATHY #CULTURE #SELFCARE
EventWell will be kicking off its fourth annual mental health and wellbeing campaign for the Event Industry, #EventWell20, with the addition of Event Wellbeing Day, taking place on Wednesday 26 February.
Helen Moon, Managing Director of EventWell said “The #EventWell20 campaign has ambitious aims. We are building on the success of the previous three years by encouraging event businesses and organisations to take positive tangible action to address mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, by signing the EventWell Manifesto on Event Wellbeing Day and then spending the following six months, supported by the Time to Change team, preparing to sign the TTC Employer Pledge during Event Wellbeing Week in September.”
Moon added, “there is a real culture issue in the event industry leading to one in three event professionals struggling with mental ill health every year. Lots is being done by way of training mental health first aiders and introducing wellbeing programmes and benefits which is great. However, what event companies and businesses also need to do is look to incorporate the Government’s ‘six core standards’ identified in the 2017 ‘Thriving at Work’ report, which address workplace culture and lead to safer, diverse and inclusive workplaces that lead to happier and healthier working environments.”
The EventWell Manifesto and the Time to Change Employer Pledge aims to support event businesses and employers to do this.
We fully support this manifesto & mission at House of Party Planning and encourage anyone looking for more information to visit https://eventwell.org/eventwell20/ and sign up!
#EWD20 will be followed by Event Wellbeing Week #EWW20, taking place in September, from Monday 21st to Sunday 27th.
