At Niroshini, we are dedicated to building an employer community, that wishes to be proactive about employee mental health and well-being. We want to work collaboratively with you, to help nurture a psychologically healthy and safe work environment. In doing so this has an improved effect, on employee’s overall performance and productivity. In addition, increased engagement, reduced sick days and high retention, ultimately benefits the business bottom line.
To engage with employees with conversations about well-being and providing practical support, means you have the ability and effectiveness to shift the culture of your workplace, to one of openness, kindness, empathy and compassion. We all want to find ways to prevent poor mental health. Establishing relationships that engage deeply with employees, to understand their personal and professional challenges, means that there’s more likelihood, to put the right actions in place so that staff feel supported from the offset.

1 in 5 employees, state that money worries, have impacted their ability to do their job. Financial well-being is about having certainty, good management, capacity and confidence with money. With rising inflation and interest rates, these are under threat. 1 in 3 employees are affected by financial pressures. This is the most common external cause of stress which shows an increase of 23% versus last year. This illustrates the global cost of living crisis, on employee well-being. (Champion Health: The Workplace Health Report 2023).
The number of employees experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm, has increased from 8% last year to 9% this year. This means that in every 1,000 employees, 90 people have these thoughts – 10 more people than last year. Data shows little difference between male and female employees, having thoughts of suicide or self-harm – but what is significantly different, is that female employees are twice as likely, to access mental health support, in comparison to male colleagues. (Champion Health: The Workplace Health Report 2023). Research from the Samaritans reveals that middle-aged men, are more likely to die by suicide, than any other age group.
Did you know that heart attacks are statistically more likely to happen on a Monday? Clinical investigation reveals that there’s a connection, between perceived psychosocial stress in the workplace and heart attacks. Psychosocial stress is related to circumstances, where we don’t feel as if we belong, that we’re not good enough and also feel excluded.
Understanding ourselves and who we are, our characteristics and preferences, our style of behaviour and how we come across to others: these things help us to have a sense of well-being and gain true self-acceptance. Knowing what our individual strengths are and appreciating our unique individuality, helps us have a sense of happiness and fulfilment. Besides this, compassionate, ethical organisations, that truly invest in the development and well-being of their staff, reap the rewards.
We are building a network of corporate companies and businesses who would like to sponsor a space on our “Celebrating Strengths – Men’s Retreat”. This means that our retreat, is accessible to those who otherwise, may not be able to finance the day. This can be for anyone to use or you can gift the sponsored space to an employee.
Retreat attendees will receive a certificate on completion of the day. This is to demonstrate their commitment to self-development and improving mental well-being.
We want to encourage a movement whereby it’s seen as a strength, to undertake a day like this and for employers to value this self-commitment, as a “positive tick” towards someone’s employability credentials.
PR and marketing support is available, to organisations partnering with us.
