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.

Why aren't there more data-driven companies?

‘In God we trust. All others must bring data.’ (W. Edwards Deming) In their book, ‘Competing in the age of AI,’ Harvard Business School professors, Marco Lansiui and Karim Lakhami explain how market leading companies will increasingly use analytics and business intelligence tools to integrate internal and external data - to drive business insights, predictions, and operational actions.
