Creating supportive mental health and wellness initiatives across retail

Our Goal

Across retail it’s clear that employees' mental wellbeing is becoming priority- directly impacting engagement and overall performance. With a growing emphasis on creating a supportive and inclusive workplace culture, fostering open communication and offering resources to address stress, burnout and work-life balance, the ICN’s goal is to connect leaders developing cut through mental health strategies to elevate wellbeing across the sector.

We encourage those leading the charge in health and wellbeing to contribute to the ICN's mental health events and TV. As a community of leaders we can acknowledge the blind spots and shed light on impactful ways to tackle and support wellness across the sector.
