A healthy and engaged workforce is a key factor in improving organisational productivity and performance. With mental health costing employers up to £56bn[1] each year in absenteeism, staff turnover and lost productivity, and stress, depression and anxiety accounting for 49 % of all work related ill health cases[2], it makes good business sense to invest in training and support to ensure the wellbeing of your workforce.

Employers have a legal duty of care to protect the health and safety of their employees whilst at work, which includes psychological health and safety. Sustaining employee wellbeing in the long term requires active involvement at organisational level using a combined approach of preventative and management strategies.

Our health and wellbeing specialists offer a range of services to support your organisation in creating a mentally healthy workplace and managing psychosocial risks to reduce exposure to workplace stress. Through risk management training, reviews, workshops and awareness programmes, we help support your organisation sustain long term employee wellbeing. Taking action will demonstrate to insurers you are pro-actively addressing employee stress and mental health in the workplace which may lead to reduced insurance premiums.

Stress and poor mental health in the workplace can impact negatively on performance and productivity resulting in financial losses through high levels of sickness absence, disruption to schedules and a knock-on effect for other employees, reduced productivity and high staff turnover. This is in addition to the human cost in terms of the detrimental impact on health.
