Mindful Employers Network

This network is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health and wellbeing in your workplace or business and we welcome representatives of employers from all sectors.

The network sees an increase in attendance at events year on year concluding that mental health and well-being remains a top priority for employers.

The network has produced some memorable events and awareness sessions since its formation in February 2008.  Topics involving managing stress, resilience, bereavement, Asperger syndrome, employee engagement and absenteeism are among the many issues addressed at regular free meetings – which affords the opportunity for local businesses of various sectors and sizes to share experience and best practice. With generous support, the network meets at top class venues such as the Swindon Marriott, Jurys Inn Swindon and Nationwide House and is now viewed as one of the largest active business groups in Swindon.

Due to COVID19 we are currently running events virtually via zoom.

If you are a Swindon or Wotton Bassett Business and are interested in joining the network please contact

Our next event is February 16th, Please follow this link to book your tickets!

A word from the MEN Chair:

Melanie Richens who is the independent volunteer Chair of the Mindful Employers Network feels that the issues of wellbeing and the association with business performance is catching the attention of many employers in the town.  “I am constantly surprised by the interest in this initiative. We used to get over 100 delegates at our annual conferences – now it is not uncommon to get that number at our regular meetings. It seems to me that regardless of which way the economy is heading – mental health and wellbeing policies are becoming entrenched in the management culture of very many employers locally. This is great news for employees, business success and the positive reputation of the town moving forward.”
