It’s Good to Talk: Creating A Safe Space for Employees with Jenni Field Comms In A Nutshell

    • Technology

Hello everyone, we’re back and better than ever with a second season of Comms In A Nutshell! A brand new look, a new episode format (episodes are now more appropriately nutshell sized) but all the same great internal communications insights you all know and love. 
To mark the first episode back we’ve got a great guest. She is an international speaker, author, podcaster and business communications strategist and having worked in communications for almost 20 years she specialises in helping teams and leaders use communication to take people, and organisations from chaos to calm. 

We're joined today by Jenni Field who we're going to be chatting to about how to create safe spaces for employees within your organisation.  Creating safe spaces is incredibly important when ensuring employees feel safe at work and feel like they can talk about their feelings and experiences.

In our latest report with our partner, If U Care Share, we found that on average 58% of respondents have suffered mental or physical stress as a result of work in the past two years and we want to explore how businesses can deal with the factors that impact mental health in the workplace from creating a safe culture to the importance of values.
