CASE STUDY: TURNING THE TIDE ON SEAFARERS WELLBEING
Client: A global shipping major
Challenge faced: Helping seafarers deal with the isolation and mental health struggles that come with their jobs.
Owing to the stressful nature of the shipping industry, seafarers face a range of mental health challenges, from exhaustion and boredom to depression and even thoughts of suicide. Manah Wellness helped Synergy Marine, a Singapore-headquartered shipping firm, to normalise mental health conversations at multiple levels of the organisation's hierarchy by:
- training members of Synergy's staff to become Wellbeing Ambassadors and Champions, i.e., mental health first-responders and advocates,
- conducting psychologist-facilitated one-on-one emotional check-ins for each team member, and
- providing personalised growth roadmaps to each employee for their unique needs,
This is just a glimpse of how we have helped Synergy build a 'DNA of caring' that sets it apart in its industry.
