Dalton Wise and Parkhouse Bell are very pleased to announce their new partnership to promote a programme of mental health and wellbeing support within the Further Education sector.

This programme combines Dalton Wise’ over 30 years’ experience of mental health, stress and anxiety related issues with Parkhouse Bell’s 13 years’ experience supporting businesses and business leaders develop high-functioning teams. Together we aim for mental health and wellbeing to become a crucial component of workforce planning for colleges.

Our “Get 8 Wise about your Wellness” workshop at this year’s Skills and Education Group Conference will give you the tools to tackle yesterday's issues, today's problems and tomorrow's stresses.

The programme will discuss key aspects of workplace mental health and how wellbeing initiatives can improve staff retention and increase staff performance. We will also explore the benefits of implementing good governance and how to manage mental wellbeing for staff and students through effective leadership.

Kim Rutherford, Founder/Director, Dalton Wise explains:

“After working with Parkhouse Bell at a senior level for a few years I got to see first-hand how truly invested in their candidates and their clients they are. They go the extra mile and personalise the services they provide. I have not experienced many businesses who work to the same standards and integrity, it’s a privilege to work with them again in something so important.”

Helen McAnally, Founder/Director, Parkhouse Bell, added:

As sector specialists, Parkhouse Bell is very mindful of the current and increasing challenges for FE colleges, which can place staff and learners under increasing pressure. As an Executive Search company, we also believe that increasing the mental wellbeing within an Executive team and Board is crucial to improving overall college success and learner achievements.

Partnering with Dalton Wise allows us to combine our expertise to help colleges effectively support staff and learners in this changing environment. Dalton Wise have a true understanding of how to bring the best out of your staff to drive business performance, and we look forward to working further with them on this programme.”
