Workplaces are more than just where you go to work; they are where we spend, on average, most of our lives. It’s a place where individuals bring their emotions, experiences, and unique personalities each day. With every person being unique, creating an environment where such diverse personalities can thrive can be challenging.
Why it’s Important
According to a recent survey by Champion Health, 60% of employees say they’d feel more motivated and more likely to recommend their organisation as a good place to work if their employer took action to support mental wellbeing.
Creating an environment where you and your team can be authentic, relatable, and genuinely care are the foundations for a workplace where individuals don’t merely fit in; they truly belong.

Imposter Syndrome – What is it?
41% of UK employees have experienced imposter syndrome in the workplace in the last year. (CIPHR, 2023)
Imposter syndrome happens when people don’t feel comfortable at work. It’s a lingering feeling of self-doubt and inadequacy, even when it’s clear that they’re successful at their job. Like a relentless inner critic that erodes their self-confidence, making it challenging for them to feel comfortable in their roles.
Imposter syndrome can manifest in several ways. It can make you second-guess your abilities, experience anxiety about being exposed as “frauds,” or downplay your achievements.
