BGL commits to supporting mental health and wellbeing with Mental Health First Aiders
BGL Corporate Solutions, Australia’s leading provider of SMSF administration and ASIC corporate compliance solutions, announce 25 members of its leadership team are now accredited Mental Health First Aiders.
“I am incredibly proud of the team” said Ron Lesh, BGL’s Managing Director. “With the help of Joel Clapham, Founder and Chief Mental Health Champ at Hearten Up, all 25 members of the BGL leadership team are now accredited Mental Health First Aiders. This equates to 1 trained Mental Health First Aider for every 7 BGL team members.”
“Our team has worked tirelessly through 2020/21 to produce sensational, award-winning software for our clients. Supporting their mental health and wellbeing now and into the future has never been more important,” continued Lesh. “Providing our leaders with the opportunity to become accredited Mental Health First Aiders is just one of the many initiatives we have implemented over the past 2 years to better support our team.”
Since December 2019, BGL has provided all team members and their immediate families with a complimentary Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Relationship Matters, a not-for-profit organisation with highly trained professional counsellors who are there to help our people deal with whatever issues are impacting on their lives.
“Supporting our people’s mental health and wellbeing isn’t just a nice thing to have in brochures and policies – it is essential for any business who truly cares about their people,” said Lesh.
In recognition of the hard work and resilience of the team over the past months, BGL will be closed for a team Thank You Day on Monday 1 November 2021. No live services will be available on this day.
