Mental Health

At Kantar, we prioritise and promote mental wellness at work and are passionate about providing our people with tools and resources to support them day to day.

“The care and wellbeing of the Kantar team is my highest priority, and good mental health is a critical part of this. I want to be part of a team that cares for each other, looks out for each other, and proactively supports each other. Talking about how we feel, in good times, and tough times, is all part of forming great relationships. So, I am delighted to wholeheartedly support our mental health campaign and am always personally available to talk.”

World Mental Health Day

We are proud of how our culture promotes good mental health all year round, allowing our people to access support and advice whenever it’s needed. World Mental Health Day is an important day allowing us all to reflect and focus on what new practices could improve our mental health – one size does not fit all.

Throughout the month of October, we hold several team sessions on different aspects of mental wellbeing. In 2021, we also gave our people an additional day of leave for World Mental Health Day, in recognition of the challenges we have all faced throughout the pandemic.
