England and Lancashire cricketer Keaton Jennings joined the Marketing Derby Bondholder Breakfast event in association with Derby County Community Trust and Knights Plc, which focussed on mental health and well-being in the workplace.
Held in the Captain’s Club at Pride Park Stadium, the event covered ways to effectively manage mental health issues and representatives from both the Community Trust and Knight Professional Services explained how organisations can support their employees.
The Health Safety Executive agency reported in 2018 that mental health related issues such as stress, depression and anxiety accounted for 57% of working days lost. Both businesses discussed barriers that exist to support mental health and manager training to improve the wellbeing and mental health of their employees.
Hosted by RamsTV’s Owen Bradley, the Bondholder Breakfast was also joined by cricketer Keaton Jennings who represented England. Jennings who has struggled with his own mental health took part in a Q&A with the 142 people in attendance. He shared his own experiences of managing his own mental wellbeing, being in the spotlight and dealing in situations under intense pressure.
