Is your organisation ready to talk about workplace taboos?
Here at The ONE Group, we’re passionate about wellbeing. In order to allow your organisation to open up about important mental health and wellbeing topics – our quarterly HR meetups are back for 2019. We have partnered up with The One Group to engage in discussions on topics such as mental outlook, diversity, female & male employee lifecycle.
The lifecycle of a female employee
Over the next two ‘Talking Taboo’ themes, we will be exploring the challenges related to gender at work. In the summer/autumn the focus will be on women and in winter we will focus on men.
Why is it that men and women can work alongside each other and yet have very different experiences of the same workplace? In this session we will look at how business cultures affect equality and inclusion for women, exploring the challenges women face and how most workplace cultures can undermine a woman’s ability to progress.
Please join us and bring a male colleague, as this session is of equal importance for men and women. Equality and inclusion will not happen with only half of the workforce understanding the issues and recognising the role they have to play in bringing about change.
Come and join the conversation today.
Jacqui started her career in HR in 2001, becoming fully CIPD qualified in 2005. Working mostly in the software industry, her HR experience covered building new teams, merging teams post-acquisition, setting up short-term international assignments and implementing job-sharing programmes across international borders.
While working in HR, Jacqui trained in Cognitive Therapy and NLP. After graduating in 2009 as an NLP Master Practitioner, she set up her own successful therapy business with private clients in Cambridge.
During this time, Jacqui became aware that wellbeing was moving up the business agenda – but realised there was a lack of clarity and support for HR professionals to understand how to address mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. So, in 2013, merging her therapy and HR training, she set up Namasté Culture to help organisations align their wellbeing strategies with their business goals.
