Can you help with our projects?
1. Staying and Thriving at Work
We are looking to speak to employees who have recently returned to work following a period of absence due to stress, anxiety or depression. Dr Jo Yarker is working with Sheffield University on a project that aims to understand the needs of employees who return to work following mental ill-health.
2. Cognitive Fitness, Health and Productivity
We are looking for organisations with 1000+ employees to take part in a project that aims to improve cognitive fitness in employees. Cognitive fitness encompasses a range of skills; e.g. optimal thinking, multi-tasking, learning, decision making and communication. The team will evaluate the impact of the new gaming app designed to improve employee's cognitive fitness.
If you are interested in getting involved in either of these projects please get in touch with Joanna Yarker on Joanna.firstname.lastname@example.org
