Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

In a world filled with ever-evolving technology, mental health in individuals has taken its toll. With a scary decline in people’s wellbeing (especially since the pandemic hit), it’s important for us to show our support towards the state of other’s mental health & encourage people to voice their feelings without the fear of being judged.

Did you know that a 2014 study found that almost 20% of people, in the UK, aged 16 & over, showed symptoms of anxiety or depression? At Techienology, we understand the struggles that most individuals face. Therefore, the wellbeing of our workers come first.

To promote a healthy work/life balance, we asked our staff to delete Outlook emails & Microsoft Teams from their mobile phones to ensure that when they’re away from work, they’re really away from work. This encourages them to switch off from their work duties & focus on more important things, such as hobbies, friend & family, and more.

We also partake in a half hour break every Friday. This is a time to relax, away from work, & have a good old natter. We implemented this in an attempt to improve productivity and so far, it seems to have been successful. We don’t expect our workers to be fully focused all day, every day. That’s why we created this time to disconnect from their PC’s/phones & simply have a brew and a chat.

Mental health at work matters. It’s crucial for you to feel safe & at ease in your workplace, as it can increase productivity, strengthen relationships & encourage important work-related conversations. Having a healthy work environment means having healthy relationships with staff, which is crucial if you want to have a solid, loyal team.

Nobody should have to struggle alone. There is always someone there for you, whether it be a family member or a complete stranger. Reach out if & when you need. Let’s erase the narrative of mental health being a taboo subject. Everyone faces a burn-out at some point in their life. If you’re struggling, there are multiple resources for you to use.
