Nexia TS Pledges its Commitment Towards Beyond the Label to Fight Against Mental Health Stigma

 

Singapore, 10 October 2018 – Nexia TS today joins like-minded corporations in a nationwide initiative to fight against mental health stigma. Championed by the National Council for Social Service (NCSS), Beyond the Label was officially launched on 8 September by DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam. This initiative is a movement to address stigma faced by persons with mental health conditions in society.

 

In our corporate commitment towards Beyond the Label,  we aim to provide a safe and supportive environment for disclosure, adopt inclusive hiring practices and equip our staff with confidence and knowledge to better support persons with mental health conditions.

 

This day, the firm is joined by its staff in an effort to promote and raise awareness through sharing of campaign videos within the company and encourages dialogue on mental health.

 

“As a socially responsible firm, we recognise the need to be the catalyst for change and champion this movement collectively at the workplace. The firm pledges its commitment in making this change by complementing existing HR policies with best-practice mental health policy and increasing work support through teamwork. Equipped with adequate education provided by NCSS to raise the awareness of mental health stigma, being part of this change is made possible to build an inclusive workplace for all.” 

Henry Tan, Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS
