Hospitality Action launch mental health campaign

Ten of hospitality’s brightest HR sparks gathered to plot out an awareness campaign aiming to dispel the stigma attached to mental health around the industry and equip operators with the knowledge, resources and tools they need to safeguard against situations that could result in a mental health crisis.

Their focus is on empowering employees to speak up before a problem becomes acute; and educating managers to spot developing problems and normalise open conversations around mental wellness.

Hospitality Action is working on the campaign in association with Compass Group who, with some 59,000 employees across the UK and Ireland, have skin in the game when it comes to keeping employees happy and healthy.

There’ll be three prongs to the campaign. First, to address the individual dealing with mental ill-health, who doesn’t know who to talk to or where to turn. Second, provide tools to help people spot red flags in the behaviour of friends and colleagues, and guide them on how to start conversations. Finally, to provide HR tools and exemplars for operators to apply in their sites.

The whole campaign is premised upon giving the industry’s three million-plus employees the means to look after themselves - and others.
