HOW WE’VE HELPED

Slide "Wonderful course.  I have done several of these courses and do a lot of mental health research and this was still really informative with lots of new and informative information." WORKSHOP PARTICIPANT. PROMOTING MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE, 2021 Slide "It was important to us to offer our people something they would genuinely benefit from, both in relation to their resilience and effectiveness at work, and also in their personal lives. The Umbrella team delivered an engaging resilience programme across several locations. They were flexible, professional and provided the necessary expertise to ensure the programme was a success." OLIVER POMFRETT – HEAD OF PEOPLE AND PERFORMANCE CRAIGS INVESTMENT PARTNERS Slide "Umbrella's resilience training was excellent. It was great to have a number of exercises that meant people were actively engaging and coming up with solutions as part of small teams. In my view the best thing about the workshop was being given practical tools that we can use as a team to strengthen our resilience. I am very hopeful that the day out doing this is going to make a significant difference to how our team operates and works together. I have since recommended Umbrella to other government departments.” SISILIA ETEUATI – CHIEF LEGAL ADVISOR NEW ZEALAND CUSTOMS SERVICE

and Umbrella have been critical in designing a tailor-made program to support our people and up-skill our managers. Umbrella are always a delight to engage with, and having a team of Clinical Psychologists on hand to provide us with advice, support and training has made a huge impact on the wellbeing of our people.”
LINDA SHEARER – HEAD OF PEOPLE EXPERIENCE, NZ XERO
Slide "Through the Umbrella Wellbeing Assessment we were able to understand our organisation better and developed a programme to suit our needs. As such, the mental wellbeing workshops for our leaders were outstanding. The workshops have equipped our leaders with more understanding about mental wellbeing and enabled them to have quality conversations with their team members. We've made it safe to talk about mental health, it's been an invaluable investment in our organisation and our people.”
VICKI CASELY – CHIEF PEOPLE & STRATEGY OFFICER, SOUTHERN CROSS HEALTH SOCIETY
Slide "Initiatives to support employee wellbeing are no longer seen as a 'nice to have' but as an essential differentiator." - DELOITTE 2018 Slide "The results of our updated ROI analysis show a financial case in favour of employers investing in mental health. We now find that on average employers obtain a return of £5 for every £1 (5:2:1) invested." Mental Health and Employers: Refreshing the Case for Investment
– DELOITTE, JANUARY 2020
Slide “Making sure your team can cope and excel during times of change is important for leaders.

Highly recommended” TONY WILSON – GENERAL MANAGER, AGRECOVERY. MAY 2021
