Creating Positive Workplace Cultures for Those Who Care for Others
13:30 - 14:45
Come along to this session to hear how the Scottish Government is committed to driving a supportive and enabling culture for people working in health via their Improving Wellbeing and Working Culture Strategy for Health, Social Care and Social Work.
The session will be chaired by Fiona Hogg, Chief People Officer, Scottish Government.
Delegates will hear from Scottish Government colleagues Kirsty Merriman, Programme Development Lead for Leadership and Talent Management and Alison Carmichael, Head of Workforce Experience who will talk about the three pillars of the new Strategy:
- Why Leadership Matters?
- Why Equalities Matter?
- Why Wellbeing Matters
The session will also explore the aims and outcomes of NHS Forth Valley’s Workforce Wellbeing Plan and about the four-pillar approach they have adopted to support the financial, physical, mental and social wellbeing of their workforce.
Dr Susan Ramsay, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, will also discuss the Occupational Health Service’s Mental Health Pilot Project - an innovative Occupational Health clinical service development aimed at increasing the offer of support available to staff by providing psychologically safe spaces to reflect upon the difficulties of recent years and acknowledge the impact on staff’s health and wellbeing.
