Title Are Manchester firms addressing workplace wellness? Media name/outlet Manchester Evening News Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 19/09/17 Description “It takes a lot to get over the slightly warped, alpha male attitude in business where you have to suck it up and get on with it,” said Professor Vikas Shah, a serial entrepreneur and international business icon, who has spoken freely in the press about his anxiety and depression.
Professor Shah is managing director of the Swiscot Group, a Manchester-based textiles and commodities trading firm, visiting Professor of Entrepreneurship with MIT Sloan and an honorary professor at the Alliance Manchester Business School.
He elaborated: “There’s also the sense that as a business ‘leader’ you shouldn’t show weakness. It’s not that people have said not to talk about these things, it’s just that this attitude has become a dogma within business.”
