Ben promotes positive change in 2024

Industry charity Ben is encouraging staff in the sector to kick off 2024 by taking active steps to address any health, wellbeing or career concerns.

Rachel Clift, Health & Wellbeing Director at Ben, said: It’s This New Year, Ben is revealing new ways for automotive people to make positive changes to their lives for 2024 and beyond. January can be a challenging month, and, with Blue Monday fast approaching, Ben is sharing how people can benefit from a new focus to enhance their health and wellbeing and the right support to achieve their goals.”

Blue Monday, which falls on the third Monday in January each year, and for 2024 is on 15 January,  has been characterised as the most depressing day of the year and is used by many organisations to highlight the issue of mental health.

Rachel cotinued: “January also a time when people typically consider making career and lifestyle changes. Ben is highlighting how its Coaching Service for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive industry can support individuals to progress to their career, boost their confidence and improve their lifestyle including eating habits, self-care and work-life balance.”

Rachel added: “January tends to be a time for self-reflection. We hear a lot about resolutions and setting goals which can be difficult to achieve on your own. People can sometimes feel stuck in their personal lives and in their career, but that’s why our coaching service is so valuable – our coaches help you work out what you want in life and how to move towards or achieve this. They help give individuals the vision and the motivation they need to make positive, lasting changes. We also have some fantastic and fun events happening this year which might tick the box for many of our automotive family in terms of giving back, increasing physical activity levels and enhancing overall wellbeing.”
