At this CIPD Annual Conference session on Thursday 8th November 2018, Nicky Ingham spoke about her own personal story of struggling with this, Ian Pettigrew spoke about the need to address organisational culture and help people be resilient and be there for them if they struggle, and David Hayden facilitated a world cafe discussion to capture the wisdom in the room about this topic.
