The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry and Atlas Insurance have renewed their bronze collaboration agreement with the aim of supporting the Health and Wellness Committee.
Ahead of the signing, Marisa Xuereb, The Malta Chamber President, emphasised how employees are essential for businesses to be successful. Hence, giving importance to mental health is vital and should be pursued to achieve success milestones. “Ensuring that employees are mentally well is beneficial for both the company and for workers, both at work and in all other aspects of their lives,” said President Xuereb.
“A shift in attitudes by both employees and employers about mental disorders is needed to address the importance of mental health in the workplace. This collaboration will continue solidifying the relationship between the two entities in bringing value to both Chamber members and the business community at large through various workshops and events with the aim of prioritising health and wellness at the place of work,” noted Xuereb.
"At Atlas, we believe that for a truly sustainable future for our Maltese society, we have a long way to go in facing several issues relating to health and safety in a number of sectors; mental health challenges in the workplace as well as gender and burden sharing. We hope to stimulate discussion and provide tools which will facilitate change for the better over the coming year in these areas with the Chamber," said Catherine Calleja, Atlas Insurance Executive Director.
The agreement was signed by President Marisa Xuereb and Deputy President Chris Vassallo Cesareo on behalf of The Malta Chamber and Mr Matthew von Brockdorff and Ms Catherine Calleja for Atlas Insurance PCC Ltd.
