We have recently partnered up with The Burnt Chef Project in order to focus and end the stigma on mental health. This partnership will not only provide easy access to mental health services with fully-funded counselling, but also features instant, round-the-clock access to numerous resources in order to prevent, detect & self-manage mental health conditions.
Conjointly, we have also introduced mental health first aid training and the addition on at least one mental health champion per department, for any and all staff members to turn to. It is believed that 82% of people working in hospitality have experienced mental health challenges in their career, with 46% not feeling comfortable discussing it at work. The role of the mental health champion is generally to help start those important conversations, and change the way we talk about and manage our mental health.
