Blink invites you to their event

The Shift LIVE: #AMA on frontline stress and wellbeing

About this event

April is Stress Awareness Month and, to mark it, we're bringing together a group of frontline wellbeing experts to answer your questions:

  • Chris Stewart, Managing Director of Minding Minds, a Mental Health First Aid training company
  • Ian Gordon, former President of Administrative Operations at Elara Caring
  • Simon White, VP of People at Blink

In this inaugural session of The Shift LIVE, we'll be discussing the topics of frontline stress and wellbeing, as well as answering your questions about supporting frontline staff.

It's truly an 'Ask Me Anything' event and our panelists will be ready to answer queries such as:

  • What are the biggest warning signs for frontline burnout?
  • Which strategies are most successful when it comes to protecting frontline wellbeing?
  • How do you create a culture where 'it's okay to not be okay' — especially when your workforce is distributed and deskless?
  • What can be done to support first-line managers with their own mental health and that of their teams?

The cost of presenteeism is DOUBLE the cost of absenteeism for a business meaning that keeping your frontline workforce happy and healthy isn't just an ethical imperative, but a business necessity too.

Sign-up below to put your questions to the panel and join us live as they give out their answers.

If you can't make it on the day, don't worry — we'll make sure your question gets answered!
