The Mindful Business Charter (MBC) resulted from the collaboration (initially) between leading law firms and banks in the UK committed to changing how businesses and people work.
We all understand now more than ever the importance of better mental health and wellbeing, especially when we are working in stressful environment or isolated remotely.
The Charter is brave and commercial. It recognises that we cannot remove all sources of stress, nor will change happen overnight – but as a business community we have a responsibility to try do things differently, to remove unnecessary sources of stress, where ever possible, and create an environment where people feel safe to speak up. The MBC should sit along and complement an organisation's broader mental health strategy.
