Rokbak Trucks, a part of Volvo Construction Equipment, called on Headtorch to help tackle their mental health culture head on – and found that the payback was almost instant.
Volvo Construction Equipment is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of construction and mining equipment.
Following a heavily subscribed Suicide Awareness event and subsequent feedback, it was clear to the senior team that there was a gap in their knowledge and understanding of mental health in the workplace, and a real need from their employees for more support and training.
They began to look for an organisation with a flexible and adaptable approach to Mental Health training to ensure the needs of everyone within the business were met.
“The payback was almost instant, and the productivity gains are lasting.”
Headtorch’s proven programme worked to tackle mental health across all levels of the business, focusing on three main groups:
All the programmes are designed to ensure delegates take away practical tools they can start using immediately.
“Employee engagement scores are up 8%.”
“Headtorch had a flexible, adaptable approach that suited our needs.
The programme was a huge success. Almost everybody in the organisation is comfortable with mental health now and it’s engrained in the Volvo culture.
Payback was almost instant, and I’m talking months here – we automatically became more productive!
Most importantly, the whole workforce is engaged in mental health. Everyone knows that it’s OK not to be OK, the whole team is there to listen and support.
When a burly welder stops our HSE Manager to have a chat about a mental health issue, this speaks volumes about how far we’ve come.”
