"Placing employee wellness and prosperity at the heart of our company culture has always been a key driver for MicrobesNG. By engaging with Bloomwise (a fellow University of Birmingham spin out company) MicrobesNG has been able to engage in mental health provisions for our staff in a real and tangible way. By hosting our employee diagnostic meetings Frankie and Paris were able to help define key development areas that would have real impact in the creation of the company Mental Health Plan. The workshops that they will deliver are aligned to our specific needs based on feedback from our team. As a wider result of our work with Bloomwise we have been able to build a whole calendar of mental heath activities around these workshops and from Bloomwise guidance.
We knew what we wanted to achieve in relation to employee mental health provisions, but we were lacking the framework within which to deliver that in a meaningful way. The Bloomwise team have enabled MicrobesNG to realise our potential as an employer who prioritise and delivers on employee mental health provisions. There is still work to be done and I'm glad to have the partnership with Bloomwise to support this moving forward in the years to come. Thank you to Frankie and Paris for being so responsive to our needs and for all of their work to date!"
"I found myself yesterday whilst journaling expressing a lot of gratitude for the discussions that I had in the workshop I experienced.
The workshop was so enlightening for me because everybody there had made the decision to attend, suggesting they also want to make a change to how people perceive mental health and the discussions had with people who I would not normally have social encounters with were hugely rewarding and it really reinforced we are moving in the right direction for fighting the mental health crisis.
I just wanted to reach out to show my appreciation for everything you are doing, so you can feel pride and can use it as a source of motivation."
"Introduced a new rhetoric concerning workplace stress and wellbeing. Instead of the usual 'see friends and family' and 'go for a walk', it was really helpful to have the time to reflect on what our stressors and destressors are."
"Confident and knowledgeable speakers and at the same time open to talk about personal experiences helping other to feel comfortable to speak up too."
"Thought the concepts in a really approachable way and made us use them in a non-threatening way."
"Opened up an informative dialogue about mental health. The hosts of the session made us feel welcome and comfortable, and personalised the session for us (PhD students) which was a nice touch. I like how they both shared personal things about themselves too, it wasn't left only to us in the audience to be open and honest about how we felt."
"Offered some clear and up-to-date information followed by an opportunity to share our thoughts in a supportive environment. I learned a lot!"
