Portakabin joins charter to increase mental health awareness for employees


Modular construction specialist Portakabin has joined the voluntary Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health.

The MINDFUL EMPLOYERcharter, which is a UK-run initiative, was extended to include all Portakabin employees Europe-wide. Portakabin operates across 106 sites in seven European countries and has signed the Charter in order to provide wider awareness of mental health for its 1,750 employees.

Portakabin identifies itself as a caring employer and is committed to enabling a happy and healthy workplace. The company actively promotes a wellbeing culture and supports employees in making healthy lifestyle choices for good physical and mental health.

The Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health is a voluntary agreement seeking to support employers in working within the spirit of its positive approach. The Charter is one element of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER initiative which is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace.

Sandra Falcus, Head of Human Resources at Portakabin said, "Through our 'Zero Harm' vision we are dedicated to our employees' mental health and wellbeing just as much as their physical safety. We want our employees to feel safe at work mentally, and know that there are people to help if they need it. Signing up to this charter is another way to show our employees how important they are to us."

A wide range of employers from all over the UK are involved in the initiative which gives businesses and organisations easier access to information, practical support, training, networks and assistance.
