At A.P. Security, we have always prioritised our staff's mental health because we know how vital it is for a happy, healthy and productive team. Now, thanks to signing Mind's Mental Health at Work Commitment, our dedication to our staff is official! The Mental Health at Work Commitment has been developed with the professional skills of mental health charities, trade organisations and employers, to provide the foremost guidance on how to support staff.
We have always understood the importance of supporting good mental health and that need is only increasing in modern times. Now, we officially have the tools and guidance to provide the bet possible support to our team and help provide them with a legitimate long-term positive direction for their wellbeing.
