This Autumn, ACE is focusing on wellbeing and mental health

The pandemic has brought into sharp relief the need to support people through these testing and challenging times, and wellbeing should be the number one priority for managers and leadership teams this winter.

With this in mind, ACE are hosting a number of free events. Open to anyone working for an ACE or EIC member, the webinar and two practical workshops will not only help your organisation develop an effective approach to mental health and wellbeing, but ensure you are taking the time to care for yourself.

On Wednesday 6 October, ACE North West is hosting an insightful and practical session on how we can build awareness, look after our people and encourage conversations around mental health and wellbeing. Hear from Liggy Webb, an award winning and bestselling author, Jake Young, research associate at the CIPD, and Martin Lockham of Mates in Mind, a construction-based charity.

ACE has teamed up with training and development specialists Accelerator to provide not one, but two workshops. These practical sessions on building resilience (Monday 11 October) and stress on Wednesday 3 November, provide attendees with the tangible advice and support for their own wellbeing, as well as increasing wellbeing across their own organisations.

Thanks to ACE's partnership with Accelerator, these workshop sessions are totally free – offering a saving of more than £500 per person, per session – and are open to anyone working for an ACE or EIC member. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Commenting on the wellbeing programme of events, ACE’s director of people, skills and culture, Claire Clifford said: “Mental health and wellbeing should be the number one topic for leaders this winter. The effects of pandemic, lockdown and intense remote working will be felt for months to come. Make sure your organisation is best prepared by attending these events, while also making sure you give yourself the time to focus on your own wellbeing.”

“These events are also a great opportunity to invite colleagues, or even attend as part of a team exercise.”
