Mogers Drewett workshop will give firms chance to ‘Move On Up’ in Mental Health Awareness Week

May 7, 2024

Bath-based legal and financial planning firm Mogers Drewett is to host a special HR event next week to highlight the important relationship between physical activity and mental wellbeing at work.

Called Move On Up, the workshop is being staged on 16 May as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024. 

It is aimed at leaders in small and medium-sized businesses, in particular those with people management responsibilities who want to find out more about the impact of an employee’s physical wellbeing on business performance.

Mogers Drewett’s specialist HR support team will be on hand to share their professional insights on integrating movement into daily life for improved mental health.

Speakers will include Mogers Drewett head of people and performance Ben Morris and Lucy Cotterell, an experienced human resources consultant at the firm.

A fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management, Ben, pictured, is also a qualified strength and conditioning coach, and mental health first aider, with qualifications in cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness. 

Ben has also represented England in the sport of kettlebell, winning a bronze medal at the 2022 International Kettlebell Marathon Federation (IKMF) World Championships in Belgium.

Lucy, pictured, has more than 20 years’ experience in HR and has worked at director level before moving into HR consultancy for clients.

Her team at Mogers Drewett provides dedicated HR support to businesses across the South West.

Other speakers include professional fitness coach Andy Watson from BathFitFam, a community health and fitness group, who will also be present to demonstrate simple physical exercises that can be applied to everyday routines to help boost mental wellbeing.

Ben Morris said: “The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is moving more for our mental health. Being active is crucial for our mental wellbeing, yet busy-ness, information overload and unhelpful perfectionism block building any movement into our routine.

“So join us for an evening of looking at why movement matters; how it works for all of us, and what to do with that knowledge.”

The event takes place at the Rengen House co-working space in Argyle St, Bath, from 5pm. 

Mogers Drewett, which also has offices in Sherborne, Wells and Frome, employs nearly 100 people providing a full range of legal services for businesses and individuals.
