OSTC has taken another step forward in delivering on our commitment to supporting employee mental health and wellbeing. We’re delighted to share the news that The City Mental Health Alliance has awarded our organisation with the accreditation mark of ‘Achieving’ in its annual Thriving at Work assessment.

The assessment helps organisations to measure their progress as they work to build mentally healthy workplaces. The evidence-based standards are set out in the CMHA’s Thriving at Work Guide for organisations to work towards in developing their mental health and wellbeing strategies.

This year, the standards were updated to introduce the integration of mental health across the employee lifecycle, driving best practice across the ecosystem, for example through supplier engagement and a stronger focus on inclusion and diversity.

Commenting on OSTC’s achievement, Poppy Jaman, CEO of the City Mental Health Alliance said: “Reaching the level of Achieving in our Thriving at Work assessment is a brilliant achievement. ‘Achieving’ companies are making huge progress on creating mentally healthy environments where people can flourish. As we continue to respond to the pandemic, this accreditation reflects all the work done that is protecting, supporting and creating positive mental health for your workforce.”
