New York, US, June 10, 2021 – Texere Publishing has been recognized at an awards ceremony for its commitment to workplace wellbeing.
Texere Publishing was one of 114 organizations to take part in Mind’s fifth annual Workplace Wellbeing Index, and was recognized with a Bronze Award, meaning it is committed to achieving change within the workplace.
Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index is a benchmark of best policy and practice, celebrating the good work employers are doing to promote and support positive mental health, and providing key recommendations on the specific areas where there is room to improve.
The online event, hosted by Mind’s Chief Executive Paul Farmer, took place on June 8 and saw around 200 people from a wide range of organizations come together to celebrate the awards.
Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to perform better and achieve peak performance. Mental health problems are common among employees. Mind surveyed more than 42,000 employees across the 114 employers participating in the Index and included an additional section on the impact of Covid-19.
Tara Higby, Human Resource Manager at Texere Publishing said: “we are extremely proud to have received this award which recognizes the efforts the company has made in supporting our employees and the value the employees place on a positive workplace culture. During the pandemic so many people have been affected and it will be essential going forward that we continue to place our employees at the heart of everything we do”.
Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said: “It inspires me to see how all the organizations participating in the Index are taking positive steps to support the mental health of their employees. In the last year, the coronavirus pandemic has affected all our lives; the way we work has fundamentally changed, whether that is working on the frontline or working at home. Employers therefore faced, and continue to face, significant challenges in effectively supporting the wellbeing of their people in this new and uncertain context. That’s why, this year more than ever, we were delighted to celebrate the employers making mental health a priority for their organization through our Workplace Wellbeing Awards.
“As we would expect, the impact of coronavirus on the mental health of staff is a resounding theme in this year’s Index results; working longer hours and poorer work/life balance were key themes. However, it has been heartening to see how many employers have supported the mental health of their people in this particularly challenging year and these awards provide a wonderful opportunity to recognize and celebrate those forward-thinking employers who are dedicated to investing in the wellbeing of their staff.”
