Social Responsibility

Let's Talk is Clayton's Wellness Program that Promotes Mental Well-Being

January 21, 2022

Let’s Talk is our company’s commitment to breaking down the stigma associated with mental health struggles and holding space for our team members to talk about their mental health at work. This is done by encouraging team members to welcome conversation and be compassionate, kind and understanding.

In 2019, Kevin Clayton and our wellness team announced commitments Clayton and leadership were going to make to support our team members' mental well-being.

Clayton commitments create a culture that’s comfortable talking about mental health.

  • Provide tools and resources to all team members.
  • Promote work/life balance.
  • Offer holistic well-being programs.
  • Support social connection outside of the office environment.
  • Prioritize team member engagement.
  • Create optimal physical working environments.
  • Cultivate a safe, judgment-free culture.
  • Talk about the importance of mental health.
  • Make time for fun, learning and wellness at work.
  • Understand, accept and value the differences among our people.
  • Participate in leadership training.
  • Support team members in their efforts to get help.

From these commitments, Clayton’s wellness team has partnered with a trusted outside source to develop leadership training and create Let’s Talk groups for all team members.

A Let's Talk group is a safe and supportive space to connect with other team members who are experiencing similar life events and circumstances. Whether a team member is caring for a loved one, navigating through life's ups and downs or hoping to connect with others, we encourage everyone to share, grow and learn together in a Let's Talk group.

As the pandemic created stressful situations for everyone, Clayton leaders and managers have encouraged team members to take advantage of Let’s Talk groups and new external counseling resources that have been provided. Since 2020, over 500 leaders from 33 of Clayton’s locations across the county have completed the Let’s Talk training and over 200 team members have participated in the program. Empowering our team members to be more aware of their emotions and live a balanced life is another important way to improve lives and build a better tomorrow.
