To launch My Whole Self, our campaign for workplace culture change, we have published data that reveals a third of managers (33%) feel out of their depth supporting their team with mental health concerns, rising to almost half of managers aged under 25 (45%). 

This comes at a time when three-quarters (74%) of managers are concerned about their team’s mental health due to the cost-of-living crisis. Nearly one in four (23%) people with management responsibilities state they are ‘very worried’ about the impact of the squeeze on living standards on employee wellbeing.    
Ahead of My Whole Self Day on Tuesday 14 March 2023, we are calling on employers to create environments where everyone is safe to bring their whole self to work. By bringing together diversity and inclusion with health and wellbeing employers can drive positive transformation in workplace mental health and performance.  
Brilliant managers are worth their weight in gold. They play a crucial role in creating working environments that allow people to be authentic and share their whole self. Over a quarter (29%) of managers said more support and training from their employer would help them to create a team where everyone feels they can bring their whole selves to work 
Ensuring managers have the training, time and tools they need to support their teams will give people and businesses the ingredients to thrive. We have developed free resources - from activities and panel discussions to My Whole Selfies - so organisations can join the campaign for workplace culture change and take part in My Whole Self Day and beyond.
