Symbiotics were delighted to sponsor the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) conference last month with a focus on Aircrew Mental Health: Going Beyond Compliance, as this is an area of key importance. As part of the conference stream Symbiotics’ Principal Occupational Psychologist, Karen Moore, presented a paper around Monitoring Mental Health and how best this can be effectively and economically measured to best support individuals and companies.
Over the past month, the team at Symbiotics are delighted to have exhibited at both the Police Federation Conference and the Three Counties Defence & Security Expo. We are keen to develop awareness of our ADAPT system and its applications within the police and security field, with proven successes already for police forces across the country.
Mental Health and Personality are two very distinct parts of an individual’s make up between which the lines of perception can often get blurred. Here at Symbiotics we understand the difference between these and the importance they play in the day-to-day life of each and every one of us.
AAETS 2018 was not only a welcome opportunity to network with existing and potential clients but to also gain valuable knowledge of the current South Korean civil aviation sector with our focus on Airline Training and Recruitment. Of particular significance was the Symbiotics Ltd symposium presentation regarding the issue of assessing mental wellbeing within the pilot community.
Mental health is almost seen as a ‘dirty word’ – to be avoided and not mentioned if at all possible. Certainly for pilots, the possibility of admitting that their mental state is less than perfect could lead to fear of losing their licence and consequently be a disincentive to acknowledging that they might have difficulties. Yet mental health is something that is present in all people, all of the time. All individuals operate on a wellness spectrum from ‘OK’ to ‘not OK’ but it is only when one moves to ‘not OK’ that mental health is talked about. Perhaps it is time to talk about mental wellbeing instead, with a focus on how we keep people in this positive state?
We were pleased to attend The Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) Annual Conference recently, hosted by The British Psychological Society.
Apart from the opportunity to exhibit and network at EATS 2017, we at Symbiotics Ltd, were also very keen to hear the latest thinking and developments in Airline Training and Recruitment. Therefore attending key seminars, panel discussions and keynote addresses. One element that did, however, seem to be missing was discussion around assessing mental wellbeing – for all aircrew.
Our Symbiotic Performance Solutions client, 2Fly has featured ADAPT in its new promotional video.
We’re pleased to announce that Oxford Aviation Services Ltd is now using Online ADAPT for its pre-screening and development of its air traffic controllers.
Symbiotics Ltd, part of Resource Group, has formed a working partnership with Ascenso, a South African aviation recruitment company. Symbiotics will provide Ascenso with its ‘Adapt’ suite of computerised applicant screening tools that will be used throughout South Africa and across the region.
It has become clearer over the past few years that we are in the midst of a pilot shortage. Some of the larger airlines have already had to cancel flights this year for this reason, with Ryanair and Norwegian just two of the affected airlines that serve the UK. Globally the problem is even bigger.
Symbiotics are pleased to attend a lot of conferences over the course of a year and delighted to be gathering momentum with speaking engagements alongside this. Karen Moore is our principal occupational psychologist and has a busy public speaking calendar where she is able to share her knowledge and promote mental wellbeing across all professions. I sat down with Karen to find out a bit more about why she feels so strongly about raising awareness of mental wellbeing through her presentations and how she sees the industry changing.
We are delighted to announce that Resource Group’s Symbiotics Performance Solutions division is rebranding to Symbiotics.
