AMS announces exclusive partnership with Unmind to support contingent staff mental well-being
21 December 2022 — Talent outsourcing and advisory services provider, AMS, has launched an exclusive new partnership with leading workplace wellbeing platform, Unmind, to support the mental well-being of its UK and Ireland based contingent workforce during a difficult economy and a time of seasonal struggles.
Founded by clinical psychologist, Dr Nick Taylor, Unmind is a leading workplace wellbeing platform created to help businesses build better wellbeing strategies with science-backed tools that enhance work and life. It uses content created in collaboration with the world’s top clinicians, authors, and academics, combining the latest research from psychology, therapy, mindfulness, and neuroscience.
Through the platform, AMS’s contingent workers can now access an unlimited range of evidence-based tools to support mental health and wellbeing, including interactive courses, daily in-the-moment exercises, and science-backed assessments to help with areas including sleep, physical health and coping with life stressors. AMS extended workforce will also have the opportunity to invite a friend or family member to enjoy the benefits of Unmind. They will also be among the first to benefit from Unmind’s content being accessible in multiple languages.
Steve Leach, AMS Regional Managing Director, UK and Ireland said: “The pandemic really pushed the importance of mental well-being to the fore of talent strategies, but contingent workers can often be left behind in these discussions. In a tough economic climate, the extended workforce will have their resilience and mental health tested and they often don’t have the in-company support that permanent talent can access. With the winter months also a difficult time for some – including those who are struggling with SAD – now is a really crucial time to offer any help we can to our contingent workers. This partnership with Unmind means we can give back to the extended workforce who are so crucial to the future of work.”
Dr Nick Taylor, Co-founder & CEO, of Unmind added: “Burnout and poor wellbeing can have a profound impact on business productivity and performance, and this is no different with contingent workforces. We're proud to partner with AMS to support the wellbeing of their extended workforces – through these challenging winter months and beyond.”
