 In Careers advice, Team blogs

Yesterday, Director, Michelle Brightly, and Recruitment Consultant, Louise Hall, spent the day at this months ‘WIFM: Challenging the Mindset Conference’. The theme was centred around Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace and was a day inspired by experienced professionals, challenging the persona of mental well-being in organisations.

Specific Information from the day can be found here.

Recruitment Consultant, Louise Hall commented as follows:


After attending yesterday’s WIFM event – Challenging the Mindset, a day of real-life experiences and challenges, important facts about Wellbeing and Mental Health and Personality Profiling there are so many facts which could be shared.

Mental Health is something which is still a nervy topic discussed within organisations of all sizes and it is events like these which remind people that it is okay to talk and it is okay to ask for help. It is so good to see that organisations are implementing Wellbeing Strategies to ensure they have all the support they need for their employees, you never know what someone can be hiding behind a brave face.

It was interesting to see the different Personality Profiling types. Michelle and I took part in the personal assessment – DiSC. It was very interesting to see how different we actually are and how this makes us quite a good team. Michelle was D  – motivated by success, accepts challenge and thrives in achieving results. On the other hand, I was a C – motivated by gaining new knowledge, accurate, diplomatic and over critical and I probably could not agree more with both. We are now keen to see what the rest of the Bridge Recruitment team would be in the office as we cannot all be the same!

It was a very insightful day and I would encourage people to take some time to read through some of the companies who spoke at the conference. If you would like to know more about Wellbeing and Health within the workplace, whether a Director or an Employee there are many points here which we can all learn from:
