These statistics higlight the extent of the problem, published by the the government-commissioned Thriving at Workreport.
Government research shows that as a result of investing in the emotional resilience of their employees, companies have enjoyed lower absence-related costs and reduced insurance claims; enhanced employee morale and engagement, performance quality, productivity and corporate reputation.
Any business of any size in any sector can promote the resilience of their employees. Many simple interventions incurring little or no additional costs can have profound effects.
“Head Talks joined us for a workshop on how to manage mental health and stress in the workplace. The workshop had a very supportive and warm environment offering practical skills that we could use in our everyday lives. Employees who attended, left the talk feeling positive! We received great feedback and look forward to using them again. Organising the event was very easy. We told Head Talks what we were looking for and were given recommendations on speakers.”
