There are now just three weeks for your organisation to complete the Safer Highways Thriving at Workplace Survey, benchmarking the provision of workplace mental health support Before its closing date of Friday 30th October.
Last year Safer Highways sampled the 100 biggest organisations who work, not only on the strategic road network, but also who serve to maintain local roads to establish where the sector, sit against the government report – published in 2017.
This year the organisation has widened its ambitions to benchmark against other sectors.
Sponsored by Morgan Sindall Infrastructure Safer Highways has now been able to develop a new tool to not only vertically cross-slice the highways sector but also horizontally make a base line comparison between highways and other sectors including aviation, rail, maritime, utilities, construction, fleet and logistics and extend the reach further into the pharmaceutical and secondary education sectors with the ambitious goal being to effectively be able to benchmark the entire UK plc over the coming years.
“We realise that this will not be easy and indeed are grateful for the support we have already received from the above sectors. One of the key things we, as a collective, wanted to achieve from this years survey was an instant improvement plan for all organisations taking part. This has been developed in collaboration with our partners at Mind and, we hope, will provide an opportunity for organisations to begin the process of effecting real change around mental health instantaneously and not months down the line,” said Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive, Safer Highways.
“What this effectively means is that within seconds of completing the survey and adding your contact details you will be emailed a comprehensive report which can be presented right unto board level as to how you, as an organisation can effect real organisational change.
“However, this payoff comes with a price to you – our contractors, partners and clients. We ask that you are please as candid as you can possibly be so that we can produce a true, reflective picture around mental health across the whole of the infrastructure sector and not just in the “Highways Bubble.” We hope, in some way, that this will contribute to a continuous improvement in not only awareness but also organisations approach to workplace mental health. Please, we ask passionately, can you complete the survey and indeed join us for the launch of the results which will be presented on 2nd December,” he added.
