Wellbeing advice for employers

Help with creating a supportive environment 

Our 2022 Looking Glass Survey revealed that 83% of respondents feel that industry culture has a negative affect on their wellbeing. But it also pointed to signs of hope, with 38% of people saying that they feel the industry is capable of providing support, compared to 30% in the previous survey.

We know that managers are often stretched when it comes to supporting their teams. Having to deliver to tight timeframes, when working with inflexible budgets and in unpredictable circumstances can make prioritising wellbeing a challenge.

To help, we have put together some resources that can contribute to the creation of a supportive environment and start important conversations around wellbeing and mental health.

On this page you will find:

  • Industry resources to help you create a supportive environment
