We are meeting with business leaders on Tuesday the 23rd February at 10:00 to discuss the programme in further detail. If you are interested in attending or would like to know more information, please contact our Head of Wellbeing Jo Boyd.
Why we are doing this
Although the future is full of uncertainty, there is one prediction from The Centre for Mental Health that we believe all companies must pay attention to. They estimate that up to 10 million people (almost 20% of the population) will need new or additional mental health support as a result of the pandemic and that is a large proportion of our valuable workforce.
Why business leaders must pay attention to mental health and wellbeing
We all have mental health, whether we feel great or we are struggling, we all have days where we spring out of bed wanting to take on the world, and others we can barely think about getting out of bed, when we have those days we are also less resilient, which has a negative impact on work performance and productivity. Poor mental health also has a direct impact on absenteeism, attrition rates and damage to brand reputation and that’s just the start. People who lack resilience struggle with change and will not be flexible and innovative which will prevent growth of your business. So, when thinking about future proofing your business, the mental health and wellbeing of your staff must be a high priority.
A staggering 70 million work days are lost every year to poor mental health, which costs the UK economy £2.4 billion and employers £42 billion annually. Stress and anxiety disorders are the leading cause for people taking time off work due to mental ill health.
