MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK – SOS HOSTS NEXT PLC MEETING 1 (ZOOM EVENT)
SOS are delighted to have been asked to return to the giant High Street and online retailer Next Plc
This is the second year running that we are working alongside Next, supporting their existing in-house employee welfare projects. The feedback from our previous visits was extremely positive, with many employees obtaining a benefit from attending.
In line with current social distancing requirements, this session will be conducted via video conferencing platform Zoom for 2 hours. Please see the notes at the end for further details.
This is a closed event, open to Next Plc employees ONLY and is limited to 25 participants.
Conferencing Guidance Notes:
Participants do NOT need to have a Zoom account. However, you will need to download the Zoom App in order to connect. Please do this in good time if you plan to take part. The appearance and functionality of the App may vary depending on which device you are using, so please take time to familiarise yourself with the platform.
SOS will host all of the events and will send out Zoom invitations to those registered from email account so please check your spam folders. A password will accompany the email which you will need to enter when you join the meeting.
We will ask all participants to allow an introduction by SOS of approximately 10-15 minutes. A common problem with video conferencing is more than one person talking at once. With this in mind, if you want to speak, please simply raise your hand and we will make sure everyone is heard.
Next and SOS are aware of safeguarding issues at our meetings, especially when there is physical distance. We are hoping the Samaritans will be able to join us and make themselves available post event for anyone who needs support. SOS will also make themselves available post event for additional support. Next are also working to provide additional support.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE YOURSELF VISIBLE. PLEASE TURN YOUR CAMERA OFF IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE BY AUDIO ONLY
