There were three sessions that took place in total via Zoom with over 400 attendees joining from sites across the UK.  The talk looked at organisation change and explored issues around managing stress in the workplace, with a focus on identification and early intervention.  It was guided by the MOH document “Staying Physically & Mentally Well During Times of Change” written by Dr Mark Jacklin, UK MOH Manager. 

Promoting emotional resilience and mental health remains a pertinent topic in both the UK and overseas, with a number of initiatives and health promotion programmes being highlighted in both the media and also within ExxonMobil, as part of the Culture of Health Programme.   Tips and hints to help people whilst working from home were also covered in the presentation which was well received by those in attendance. 

Remember, if you need help, you can reach out to your supervisor or our Employee Assistance Programme, which is available 24/7 via AXA HEALTH.
