Jon Berry, managing director of Tyler Grange, said: “It was brilliant to be among so many other innovative businesses and individuals who are committed to celebrating and championing mental health in our communities and workplaces. Human sustainability is both important and powerful, so it was encouraging to be among the company of those who are equally committed to creating cultures that enable people to enjoy a balanced life and achieve everything they want to achieve.

“At Tyler Grange, we’re always looking at ways that we can further enhance our culture, within which people can feel safe in seeking help when they’re struggling. But also, where we’re educating, inspiring and giving permission and space to prioritise wellbeing, which is essential. It’s important to recognise that any of us can end up in that place where we’re struggling, so we’re doing everything we can to help prevent it. We’ve always really considered the impact of work on wellbeing and how we can make it conducive to helping staff thrive. In doing so, we’ve also been able to attract and retain the best talent through a shared vision and purpose.”
