Maxwell Hodge has a legal duty of care to all employees, which means that all possible steps need to be taken to protect individual wellbeing and provide necessary, and sometimes crucial, support. Maintaining a healthy workplace is a priority.
At Maxwell Hodge we are promoting mental health awareness through a range of free downloadable resources and subscriptions for meditation and mindfulness. We also have four Mental Health First Aiders to enable open conversations about mental health and provide support to anyone who may need it. With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem each year*, we consider the implementation of the trained first aiders paramount to ongoing business success, seeking to ensure that employees who may experience mental ill health or distress are appropriately supported.
