Mental Health Costs
A new report by consultancy firm Deloitte, shows that poor mental health is costing UK employers 16% more than the last estimate in 2016 and true costs could be higher as people often don’t disclose mental health problems as the true reason for absence.
This new study tracks the increase of presenteeism, or when people go to work despite not feeling up to it resulting in less productive staff when onsite. Some workers are also experiencing burnout as technology facilitates work outside designated working hours.
Stress, low mood, feelings of anxiety, lack of motivation, isolation, struggling to cope with change, are all things that need to be talked about and addressed. We now know happy staff results in a far more productive, effective and loyal workforce.
Workplace Choices programmes are here to offer a comprehensive wellbeing training programme to organisations looking to invest in the mental health of their staff. We offer impactful blend of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and specialised vocational training, aiming to support staff with new ideas and possibilities.
