You can talk about mental health at work

Helen Sawyer

Saturday 10 October 2020 marks World Mental Health Day. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is 'mental health for all’.

At Sysdoc we know that it benefits all of us to talk about mental health, whether is chatting with your colleagues or taking time to reflect.

This month we would like to highlight the World Mental Health Day. 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems this year and having a colleague in your corner can make all the difference.

World Mental Health Day isn’t simply a one-day event. We need to start now and continue our call to ensure that no-one is left behind. That’s why for this Mental Health Day we are delivering two internal Time to Talk sessions including activities to support the confidence in having conversations around mental health and build an understanding of mental health issues in and out of the workplace.

World Mental Health Day 2020

Together we are stronger and together we can make a big difference. World Mental Health Day aims to raise awareness in the global community about the critical mental health agendas – with a unifying voice through collaboration with various partners – to take action and to create lasting change through the messages we promote.

We are all in this together and together we can bring about mental health for all.

Sage article: Cloud adoption, why you should work on supporting your employees first

Manufacturers can save time, effort and money through cloud adoption projects. Around one third of UK manufacturers purchased cloud computing services in 2020. Most would have done so to make the most of well-known benefits such as improved productivity, accessibility, reporting and data security, as well as lower operating and IT costs. However, if you’re looking at cloud adoption for your manufacturing firm, it’s really important that your people are a key part of the process. Rather than implementing the changes then informing your employees, they should be involved from the start. Read this article to find out why your employees should play a role during every step of your cloud journey, how to support them, and how to avoid potential pitfalls within your team. After all, you don’t want to get this wrong and pay a hefty price for delays or even lose key people.

Lessons from Consortium working

An introduction to my experience At the beginning of this year, I started a new project working with a new client and taking on a new role for a large transformation programme. I have worked alongside other consultancies on previous programmes in the past, but this was a first for me, working within a partnership from the offset.

Why Process Excellence is key for a successful ERP Implementation

I have been reflecting on my experiences working on ERP implementation/upgrade programmes whilst also listening and hearing to what others have to say. I think back to these projects and notice everyone was working hectically towards the programme ‘Go – Live’ and were under the impression that once they achieved this Go - Live then we have successfully implemented a new ERP System and our job is complete. I think many people can agree with me that a Go – Live date is just the start of the journey.  We have got to think about the people, culture, education, efficiency in processes and where can we reduce ‘waste’.
