Rugby star Stephen Ferris inspired by Workplace Wellbeing Awards

By Staff Reporter

Former Ulster and Ireland rugby star Stephen Ferris is encouraging employers across Northern Ireland to enter the first Inspire Workplace Wellbeing Awards in June.

The ex-British and Irish Lion spoke after visiting the call centre and counselling suite run by the mental health charity. It holds its awards ceremony on June 21.

He said: "The support of my team-mates and employers were really important during the times in my professional and personal life when I had to dig deep and draw on my own resilience skills.

"I've been really impressed with what the team from Inspire have told me about how all sorts of employers across Northern Ireland are supporting the wellbeing of their staff and I'm looking forwarding to meeting them at the awards."
