Creating Supportive Workplaces
In the UK alone, around 15 out of every 100 people at work suffer from an existing mental condition. This translates to 1 out of 4 people being affected by mental health, many of whom will work in your organisation.
There are more days lost per year through mental health related illness than any other form of illness. Poor mental health contributes to significant staff and knowledge attrition. Stevenson & Farmer estimates UK business lose between £33 Billion and £42 Billion each and every year due to poor mental health.
A total of 12.8 million working days were lost because of work-related stress, anxiety and depression in 2018-19, amounting to an average of 21.2 days lost per case, official data has shown.
Identifying and tackling the root causes of poor mental health by acting to prevent adverse performance is the key to building a positive, well-functioning, and mentally healthy workplace with an embedded culture which is geared towards performance and success.
Better performing teams – and better performing organisations – exhibit greater confidence, certainty and continuity of performance in:
- Decision-making ability and the quality of decision-making,
- Reduction in number and frequency of workplace adjustments and interruptions,
- Sustainable operational and strategic transparency, and
- Bottom line financial results.
It’s about doing the right thing and delivering the bottom line.
