In 1926, the legendary car maker Henry Ford ordered his staff to take both Saturday and Sunday off. This was in part to enable staff to spend time with their families, but also for them to spend money and keep the economy running.

Since then, Ford has continued to support its staff with innovative ideas around wellbeing. Mark Wilson, Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager at Ford Motor Company, is focused on employee mental health, post-pandemic. 

“All employees will be facing a unique combination of pressures in their lives, and for some people this may contribute to high levels of stress, anxiety, and other mental health difficulties,” said Mark Wilson, Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager at Ford Motor Company. “The workplace must be an environment where people feel able to share their challenges, confide in colleagues and seek support whether that be from a manager or a trained MHFAider.”
