The power and potential of veterans in the workplace is the focus of this year’s free-to-attend Military Mind business symposium….
Sponsored by Thales and presented by Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health, the symposium will explore practical ways companies can ensure the workplace wellbeing of their veteran and reservist employees.
Held on 15 May in London and 17 May in Edinburgh, the event coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week and will centre on what support companies can implement, regardless of their size or sector.
Experts in the field of military mental health, as well as those in the corporate sector who employ veterans, will join clinical specialists from Combat Stress to present methods that businesses have used to create a supportive environment for veterans and reservists at work.
Sue Freeth, Chief Executive of Combat Stress, said: “Former servicemen and women bring enormous value to the workplace. This symposium will help responsible businesses build and enhance their workplace wellbeing programmes for their veteran and reservist workforce.
“Through this symposium we will explore practical ways companies can create effective, well-being support initiatives in the workplace. Our aim is to ensure employers are fully equipped to support their former service employees.”
