Microgaming Working on Employee Mental Health

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Microgaming announced this week that they're continuing with their pledge with Time to Change by working on improving employee mental health with The Lisa Lowe Centre.

The company's Employer Pledge is seeing the online betting giant working to end mental health discrimination and bringing a healthier and happier workplace for their workers. The company is working with The Lisa Lowe Centre, which will provide managers on recognising possible mental health issues in employees, while also giving those managers ways to help support their teams. Furthermore, Microgaming staff will be treated to various mental health training sessions in order to help with individual well-being.

Microgaming has also announced a £6,000 donation to The Lisa Lowe Center, which provides services to the 83,000 residents on the island.

Commenting on the agreement Microgaming CCO Jean-Luc Ferriere said, "We strive to maintain a culture where everyone feels comfortable to speak up about any problems they may have. With The Lisa Lowe Centre we can train our managers to better recognise the signs of potential mental health issues and be well equipped to help their team and colleagues. Most importantly, it helps strengthen our commitment to erasing the stigma by encouraging an open environment where people can talk about their mental health and know that they are always supported."

The Lisa Lowe Centre's Gareth Nicholson added: "We are pleased to see local companies recognising that supporting the mental health of their employees is as important as the usual physical health support, as one supports the other. As a charity working to increase our remit in this area we are delighted to be working with Microgaming, who are also at the forefront in recognising the need to change."

At theory all that sounds really well and reasonable, the employer would stimulate the employees to speak about their mental issues and I guess this is the modern way of running a big size corporation.
Hopefully it would work and the Microgaming personnel would feel the effect of that pretty soon, the only problem for me is whether people would be ready to speak about their problems publicly.
