The Mindful Employer Charter is a voluntary initiative to support employee’s mental wellbeing at work. At Baltic, we believe in offering heroic support to our customers, but also our own staff. Investing in our workforce’s mental health, and providing resources for any member who may be struggling with a mental health condition is something we pride ourselves on.
Baltic first became part of the Mindful Employer Charter for Employers who are positive about Mental Health two years ago. Since then, we have renewed our commitment to 2020.
We believe in supporting those who experience mental health conditions, including stress, anxiety, or depression. The Charter supports our corporate social responsibility by providing expert knowledge on supporting mental health conditions in the workplace.
Our commitment to Mindful Employer also allows us to raise awareness, and shows our support for our team. As well as helping our Baltic family, supporting mental health also creates a healthier workplace, and enhances productivity.
As part of our mental health awareness, we are also enrolling our staff on training, delivered by MIND, to increase our workforce’s own awareness, and support our staff more in the future. This training will also enable us to offer more support to our apprentices, and give our workforce a more thorough understanding of mental wellbeing.
We look forward to continuing our commitment to our employees, and the Mindful Employer Charter.
As part of our commitment, we have also added an extra level of support to our apprentice with the introduction of our Apprentice Helpline last year. The helpline is there to support any of our apprentices who are struggling, and need a helping hand in times of struggle.
The Apprentice Helpline is available to call at: 0300 555 6006.
