It’s often overlooked, but mental wellbeing is just as important as physical wellbeing. Especially at work. If people are stressed, anxious or worried—about any aspect of their life, home or work-related—then performance suffers. Morale drops. And your bottom line is in danger.
Work-related stress, depression and anxiety are growing at an alarming rate. They account for 55% of all working days lost due to ill-health. And in 2019/20, almost eighteen million days were lost.
It’s time to step up. To do something positive about mental health and wellbeing at work. But as an employer, what can you do?
