CWM Automation has recently appointed Spares & Service Manager, Michelle Taylor, as Mental Health First Aider. Michelle attended a 2-day course led by Mental Health First Aid England, learning how to promote a mentally healthy work environment, how to open conversations and break the stigma about mental health and how to encourage employees to access support early if they need it.
In July 2019, CWM appointed 8 new first aiders, with the aim of creating a safe environment for both employees and visitors. CWM built on this by assigning Michelle as Mental Health First Aider, creating a workplace that values employee well-being. With 1 in 7 people experiencing mental health issues in the workplace in the UK, it is essential to us that CWM’s employees feel supported in every aspect of their jobs.
