Breaking barriers towards good mental health at BriggsAmasco

By Rebecca Lawther, HR Manager

In the tough world of construction, BriggsAmasco has always stood out as a market leader for its exceptional roofing services. It has also developed an enviable reputation for its continuous and unwavering commitment to its employees and their well-being.

As World Mental Health Day approaches on October 10th, BriggsAmasco has demonstrated that major companies like theirs can go that extra mile, by providing a supportive environment for their staff, by prioritising mental health issues.

This policy has been reinforced by the company’s support for female staff during the menopause. In the construction industry, women contractors and other key staff members often face unique challenges, and the menopausal transition is one of them. Menopause symptoms, ranging from hot flashes to mood swings, can impact work and overall well-being. Unfortunately, these challenges are not always met with understanding in the workplace.

BriggsAmasco has broken this challenge by offering specialised support for female staff experiencing menopausal symptoms. Dedicated company workshops and sessions provide a safe space for discussion, education, and coping strategies.

Until fairly recently mental health was a topic that was rarely discussed within major companies, but now, thanks to initiatives like World Mental Health Day, conversations around it are opening up – and BriggsAmasco is at the forefront of this dialogue.

All available research consistently emphasises the importance of a supportive workplace in maintaining good mental health. It is one of the major reasons why BriggsAmasco’s mental health policy, designed to create an inclusive and understanding atmosphere, is not just a document, but a commitment to their employees.

“Our mental health policy isn’t just a piece of paper; it’s a promise,” said Rebecca Lawther, HR Manager at BriggsAmasco. “We are dedicated to fostering an environment where every member of our team feels valued, heard, and supported, regardless of their role or gender.”

BriggsAmasco’s mental health support includes counselling services, stress management workshops, and a dedicated support helpline. Moreover, the company promotes an open-door policy encouraging employees to discuss their concerns without fear of judgment. This proactive approach not only helps individuals facing mental health challenges but also cultivates a compassionate workplace culture.

Such initiatives are not just well-intentioned gestures – they are firmly rooted in research. Numerous studies highlight the positive correlation between supportive workplaces and enhanced employee mental health. A recent survey by the Mental Health Foundation found that 88% of employees in supportive environments felt their employer cared about their well-being.

Moreover, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) emphasises the importance of tailored menopause policies. Recognising the unique challenges faced by women, especially in male-dominated sectors, CIPD promotes inclusivity and understanding during this life stage.

As the world gears up to observe World Mental Health Day, BriggsAmasco sets an inspiring example. Their holistic approach, encompassing mental health and menopause support, showcases what a truly compassionate workplace can achieve.

It’s a call to action for other companies, especially in traditionally male-dominated sectors, to break the silence, open the dialogue, and support their employees not just on this day, but every day.

BriggsAmasco has demonstrated that empathy is the strongest tool in their arsenal. As they continue to champion mental health and support female staff, they have set a path toward a more understanding and inclusive future for all in the roofing business.
