Like Minds, Like Mine

Like Minds, Like Mine

Over recent years the responsibilities and expectations on employers around staff wellbeing have changed yet for many managers it is still an area that presents challenges.

This year’s annual Like Minds, Like Mine Auckland Metro Forum will focus on wellness in the workplace and highlight ways to overcome some of the difficulties experienced by employers and employees alike.

The realisation that employers hire a whole person still needs advancement when it comes to HR policy and there is a way to go before many workplaces can claim that their employees are flourishing. For this reason and given the current persistent recession it seemed like a discussion on such matters might be particularly relevant.

“Forums such as these are a vital part of the Like Minds, Like Mine programme” says Judi Clements, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation. “They put information and resources out for discussion and show people what they can do to help contribute to the creation of flourishing communities.”

Keynote speakers on the day include winner of the JRA “Best Places to Work Survey 2010 and Chief Executive Officer of Mars New Zealand Gerry Lynch, top consultant and People Development Manager Sandy Hall and Lawyer and Disability Advocate Dr Huhana Hickey.

The public forum, hosted by the Regional Consumer Network in conjunction with the Mental Health Foundation, supports and furthers the work of the Like Minds, Like Mine programme which aims to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness.

The forum is taking place at the Grey Lynn Library Hall, 474 Great North Road from 10am on Thursday 10 March and is open to anyone wishing to attend.
