Review of the year – celebrating our best bits from 2019

By Anthony Wolny | 7th January 2020 | 7 min read

Here at Cascade HR, we know the value of bringing together experts from across the HR industry (and beyond) to explore the top people topics of the day.

So, as we embark on a new year, we’ve handpicked a few of our favourite collaborations from 2019…

  1. Managing mental health – with Leeds Mind

In the UK, around 15.4 million working days each year are lost to stress, depression or anxiety, accounting for 57 per cent of all absences. So earlier this year, we hosted a webinar with Leeds Mind as expert speakers, who provided their top tips for managing employee mental health. Including:

  • recognising the symptoms associated with different mental health conditions
  • understanding the ways you can support your employees
  • opening up the conversation around mental health
