Guildford Borough Council
Prioritising quality, choice and confidentiality for a successful staff mental health and wellbeing initiative
"Very easy to measure the impact and report results into our corporate health and safety group"
With the local government heading into phases of restructuring, the Council sought evidence-based wellbeing solutions, with a particular focus on tools that helped reduce and manage stress and increase resilience, so employees were better equipped to cope during the changes. Having satisfied the Council's high IG & IS standards, the Be Mindful digital MBCT course was included in the options offered to staff, providing a highly flexible alternative to group sessions, particularly useful during the covid-19 working restrictions.
