Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace

Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace

Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace is essential to a company’s performance. The well-being of your employees is key to engagement, motivation, productivity and efficiency and the workplace is the optimal setting in which to promote positive mental health. Traditionally, workplace health initiatives have placed more emphasis on physical health and safety issues than on mental health – however, it is now estimated that nearly three in every ten employees will experience a mental health problem in any one year.

Work related stress already costs Britain 10.4 million working days per year. The human costs of unmanaged work related stress extend far beyond this. Mental health problems account for up to 30% of consultations with general practitioners in Europe. Mental health issues, such as stress, anxiety and depression, are the No. 1 cause of workplace disability claims, according to the Mental Health Commission, which estimates that 10 to 25% of those claims could be avoided with the right care early on.
