30th November will be a day to remember!
Following our 1st event earlier this year in May, where we focused on the evolving role of workplaces in addressing and prioritizing employees' mental wellbeing, we hosted our 2nd physical event titled How Mental Health Solutions Attract & Retain Young Professionals where be brought leading workplaces in Denmark - Corporate Leaders, Hiring Manager HR & Young Professionals - in one place to accelerate the world's agenda on mental wellbeing. The event’s objective was to have an end-to-end conversation that addresses mental health from all angles:
What is the mental health crisis that young professionals (Millennials, GenZ) are facing?
What are the root causes of the crisis?
Outlining solutions, tactics and strategies adopted and implemented by leading workplaces in Denmark, like Ørsted, Novo Nordisk, the LEGO Group & Milestone Systems

Opportunities for Small to Medium business to get funds to invest in their employees mental wellbeing
Real time feedback loop between young professionals and company representatives, where critical questions were asked and addressed on workplaces mental health initiatives
It was incredible to be in a room full of likeminded people who understand the mental health crisis that lies ahead of us and the urgency to discuss and take action on what can be done to improve mental wellbeing amongst young people, by creating awareness and bringing tools to employees and leaders in the workforce.
The event was sponsored by Velliv Foreningen and attended by 120 attendees.
