Attitudes to mental health and wellbeing within the work place have changed dramatically over recent years. Employees, particularly those within the GenZ and Millennial brackets, now expect a level of wellbeing support to be available through their employer.
The changing nature of work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has also greatly impacted the workforce; the Office for National Statistics found that around 1 in 5 (21%) adults experienced some form of depression in early 2021; this is an increase of 19% since November 2020 and more than double the figure observed before the pandemic. Placing an emphasis on individual well-being has never been more critical to broader organisational health and your business’ prosperity.

The UK government has announced a new Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy, setting out its vision to create a low-carbon industrial sector and dramatically slash emissions from public buildings. It has called the strategy “an ambitious blueprint to deliver the world’s first low-carbon industrial sector”, promising over £1 billion in funding to cut emissions from industry, schools and hospitals.
The underrepresentation of women in Engineering is a global issue that has proven hard to address. Whilst the industry has come a long way in terms of equality and the statistics in terms of women in STEM-related higher education, the employment of female engineers, and the number of women achieving management or high-level leadership positions is on the rise. Constant pressure is needed to effect real systemic and cultural change.
Tech for Good companies are successfully carving out a new niche within the industry. In an increasingly woke society, people are prepared to engage in difficult discussions and catapult injustices into the mainstream. Tech is being used to amplify messages and find creative solutions to everyday, systemic and global problems.
