Join us for an update on ‘The mental health of hospitality workers’ and find out how you can support the needs of employees in the industry.
About this Event
In October 2018, The Caterer released Mental Health Special, looking at the results from its own survey on the state of mental health in the workplace.This was followed in May 2019 by the ‘Service With(out) a Smile’ report from the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) looking specifically at how the hospitality industry is struggling with mental ill health and how to support change.
At this network event we will be giving a 45-minute update on the key points that the RSPH report delivered and how, as a leader in the hospitality sector you can benefit from improving your organisations response to mental health.
Did you know that for every employee whose mental ill health is unsupported it is estimated that it will cost your organisation £1300?
Across the UK 1 in 6 workers will experience depression, anxiety or problems relating to stress at any one time however, the hospitality Industry has a disproportionate number of workers who suffer with mental ill health. A recent survey found that 81% of UK chefs have experienced poor mental health during their careers and The Caterer found in 2018 that 59% of hospitality workers had a current mental health problem.
Despite a massive 45% of employees saying they would not recommend the industry, the good news is that if you invest in mental health training for your leaders and workers you will see improvements in staff morale, reduced grievances, improve staff retention, improvements in your customer service and you will meet your legal requirements as an employer.
Happier, supported staff mean better customer experiences and improved cost management.
