Scottish mental health consultancy Mind & Mission has secured exclusive rights to a ground-breaking online tool for assessing employee mental fitness in Scotland’s business community.
The proprietary tool, which has been developed by mental fitness specialist Cognomie, provides a mental fitness profile at individual, team, department or organisation level – providing invaluable insight for organisations to assess the mind of their organisation.
“Never has it been more vital for owners and leaders to understand the mind of their business, and the mental health status of their teams,” says Mind & Mission co-founder and director Kirsty Ritchie.
“The global working landscape has changed, possibly forever. Businesses have undoubtedly been facing unprecedented challenges during lockdown, as have employees, and we need to understand if employees are mentally fit to perform at their best.”
This strategic alliance between Mind & Mission and Cognomie will provide Scottish businesses with access to this well-invested, proven online resource which is already expanding globally.
The ‘Cognosis’ report assesses an individual’s perception of their mental fitness split into three categories which enables an organisation to respond appropriately and use resources accordingly:
- Myself – internal view of ability to manage thoughts and feelings positively and proactively
- Environment – how you engage with your environment, mange relationships, communicate
- Foundations – key aspects of mental fitness to develop and improve
Mind & Mission will leverage the technology and data to create accessibility and scalability for companies, to deliver the highest quality programme of work, to drive performance and development and to measure those results in terms of engagement, productivity and return on investment.
As a result of using the tool, Cognomie reports that 93% of employees feel they are more able to achieve professional goals; there is a 64% increase in engagement and 60% improvement in work performance.
“We’re delighted to be in partnership with Mind & Mission,” says Cognomie co-founder John Young.
“The pandemic has highlighted the need for organisations to make the mental fitness of their employees a strategic priority.
“Working with the highly skilled team at Mind & Mission, we can now help organisations in Scotland to ensure their employees can perform at their best.
“The dynamism and professionalism of Mind & Mission make them the perfect partner to bring the Cognosis tool into Scotland on an exclusive basis.”
