Description

Cogtio HR Event -

After the success of our last Flexible Working event... The Cogito team is back once again to give South West HR professionals the chance to learn more about the most effective ways of dealing with Mental Heath within the work place, with a fun morning of HR networking thrown in!



Like catching a cold, issues with Mental Health can happen to any one of us, at any time.

While this can have a devastating effect on people’s lives and relationships with friends and family... It can also have a huge impact on business productivity, leading to 91 million working days lost each year and costing employers up to £34.9 billion each year.

Join us as we team up with Mind and expert speakers to discuss how HR professionals in addition to better equiping front line managers, can also recognise the signs and improve the support within their own teams...

PLEASE NOTE ALL TICKET SALES WILL BE DONATED TO BRISTOL MIND

(Coffee and Pastries on arrival and buffet lunch included.)

Tom Hore - Director : Mind (Bristol)

Tom was born in Leamington Spa, left school at sixteen and completed an apprenticeship as an electrician. In his early twenties he then attended night school to gain the necessary qualifications to enter the University of Bristol as a mature student studying Social Administration. After graduating Tom spent five years living and working in paid and volunteer roles in various parts of the world including Nicaragua and Japan. Returning to England in 1993 he completed an MSc in International Development before spending five years working with homeless men in a Bristol hostel.

In 1998, looking for a new challenge, he joined Bristol Mind as Advocacy Services Coordinator, one of only three paid staff at the charity at that time. Over the next sixteen years Tom supported the growth of the organisation by developing a range of advocacy services including a pioneering service in the local men’s and women’s prisons. In 2014 he became director and since then has helped Bristol Mind to diversify its range of services, and make the organisation more accessible to everyone in Bristol; maintaining its strong focus on supporting people with long term and acute mental health problems; while also increasing the range of wellbeing activities the charity is engaged in, the latest of which being the monthly Bristol Mind Mental Health and Wellbeing Newsletter which debuted in January this year.

Tom will be discussing how reality needs to reflect rhetoric from employers around mental health and how employers need to be mindful that there are no shortcuts to creating a workplace culture that values the wellbeing of its staff.
