What can business and HR leaders do to avoid the disastrous consequences of their workforce’s mental health?
Craig Burton is Managing Director of The Works Recruitment, which has been connecting great businesses with great talent since 1991. He is also proud to be a Trustee of the Board of the Leeds Community Foundation, a Member of The Business Alliance and a mentor for business growth and development. The Works Recruitment specialises in placing contingent workers and is championing mental health in the workplace, particularly with regards to the growing gig-economy, which is often overlooked in terms of occupational health. The firm is currently working in collaboration with the Mental Health First Aid Campaign, Thriving Minds and Thrive Law to promote this agenda and is lobbying government to make it mandatory for any business employing over 30 people to have a designated Mental Health First Aider.
