A Selection of our films

HSBC – Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

This film was produced to raise the awareness of The Employee Assistance Programme and create better conversations about mental wellbeing in the business. The EAP was not being used as much as it should. Even in normal times it could be more widely used, and with the struggles Covid-19 has brought to so many, it should now be useful to more people than ever. HSBC wanted colleagues to know that the service is there for everyone. A sympathetic ear is available whenever it’s needed whatever the issue. Our film needed to emphasise that the service is confidential, from an independent provider and available ‘at work, at home and anywhere in between’.

Ask Twice
Network Rail

Mental Health is a difficult subject in the workplace and it was recognised that Managers have a skills gap in terms of facilitating conversations with their direct reports, who may be undergoing challenges. To address this, Network Rail designed a face-to-face training session to equip Managers to deal with these difficult situations more effectively. They were looking for something to start the training with a bang and show that the way you approach these conversations can make a world of difference and land simple message in a way that would really stick in people’s heads. Since attending the course, 81% of managers responding to the six-month follow up survey had at least one conversation with a team member about mental wellbeing. Further, 84% feel confident to have a sensitive conversation and 72% feel confident to use a mental wellbeing discussion tool. Ask Twice has gone on to be used widely within Network Rail and won multiple awards.

Time to Support Part 1 (Cutdown)
Network Rail

Network Rail recognised that their managers needed training in having better conversations with their direct reports around mental health. This example shows a bad approach. A key message here was that in a situation like this good intentions are not enough. Later in the course after they’ve been armed with better ways to handle things they see the same situation played out in a much more positive way

World Mental Health Day

HSBC needed a film which touched on ways that the bank is supporting people with mental health challenges. The aim was to reduce the stigma and encourage colleagues around the world to be more ready to open up about their own difficulties. We worked closely with 3 HSBC individuals, who in different ways are helping others, to tell their story in a memorable way.
