Since partnering with Mental Health UK in 2018, ISG has been working hard to redefine what health and safety means for their employees and supply chain. This means not only supporting their physical health and safety, but providing staff with the tools to support mentally healthy workplaces. With the help of Mental Health UK, ISG aims to lead the way for the construction industry, influencing mandatory health and safety training and regulation to incorporate holistic wellbeing training.

The award-winning partnership aims to breathe life into their ‘always care’ value, and support their ‘All 4 by 24’ strategy, which is underpinned by their goals to offer an unbeatable employment experience and drive revolutionary change in the construction industry. Our partnership will help do just that, with a goal to create mentally healthy workplaces for their employees, the supply chain and the wider industry.
