WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR BUSINESSES?

​According to ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) analysts, mental health absence costs £8.4 billion each year, plus another £15.1 billion in reduced productivity.

 

A further £2.4 billion is lost replacing staff who leave work because of mental ill-health. Though the overall cost is around £30 billion each year.

According to the annual CIPD Absence Management survey, 56% of employers said they would like to do more to improve staff wellbeing but do not feel they have the right training or guidance.

 

Offering support to employees can create a more productive work environment and improve the performance of your organisation.
