Legal and professional services group, Gateley, has pledged its commitment to the Mindful Business Charter to foster better working practices for mental health and wellbeing.
Gateley joins a wide range of businesses around the world in signing the Mindful Business Charter to address the avoidable stresses in working practices and to promote healthier and more effective ways of working. The Charter brings organisations and their service providers together to reach a shared agenda for mental health and wellbeing.
At an event to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, Gateley committed to abide by a set of principles centred on openness and respect for each other, improved communication, respect for working hours and considerate delegation of tasks.
In the midst of all of the upheaval and change brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Mindful Business Charter continues to provide organisations and individuals with the framework, permission and challenge to dare to be different and to work together across the business community to rehumanise the workplace. Its focus on creating an open and respectful culture and dialogue seeks to ensure that whatever the broader context in which we are being required to work, how we work and how we interact with each other should be thoughtful, mindful, and shaped as far as possible to eliminate unnecessary stress so that we can work both more effectively and more healthily – so that we can all thrive.
