Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has partnered with Mental Health UK to launch the #DownTools campaign, which aims to establish a better work/life balance for UK workers. 

Research for the campaign showed that 75% of people work beyond their contracted hours and almost half have to work at least one weekend a month. A third of respondents admitted that working extra hours had increased due to the pandemic.

Overworking and a poor work/life balance is causing a quarter of UK employees to feel overwhelmed on a weekly basis, with one in 10 admitting it was a daily problem. The manufacturer has therefore partnered with Mental Health UK to curate a well-being toolbox, providing free support and guidance on how to look after your mental health.
