    Geoff McDonald, mental health campaigner and founder, Minds @ Work: 'Protecting and prioritising the mental health of yourself and your workforce through the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.'

    The enormous changes, such social distancing measures and isolation that have been brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic means that a focus on mental health is critical for the housebuilding industry, now more than ever.

    In this episode Human Capital Group’s managing director Gerard Ball speaks to mental health campaigner and business transformation consultant, Geoff McDonald.

    Geoff left his role as Unilever’s global VP of HR over a decade ago to begin a very personally-fuelled journey to end the stigma of depression and anxiety in the workplace.

    Here he offers advice on creating cultural change that normalises mental health and mental ill health, and how businesses must make them a strategic priority.

    He talks about the need to open up the conversation around anxiety and depression, particularly in male-dominated industries such as construction and housebuilding.

    And crucially, he gives real practical advice and techniques to both leaders and employees in the industry on how to maintain good emotional health and importantly how to support each other.
