Thankfully we are seeing mental health being less of a taboo subject and businesses are recognising the benefit to both employees and the business to have services in place to support employees. In the UK alone, an unbelievable 70 million workdays are lost each year due to mental health problems, costing employers in the region of £2.4 billion per year. By investing time and effort into breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health, we can reduce the impact on the employer whilst supporting employees.
Most of us spend a significant amount of our time at work and the pressure is on for us to bring home a regular income, so to have a fulfilling job that is good for our mental health and wellbeing is of paramount importance. Sometimes strain outside of work i.e. health problems, relationships, family pressures as well as those pressures within the workplace can result in things getting on top of us. Companies that invest in mental health in the workplace can create a healthy working environment, where employees can thrive and know that if they do have issues, they have help on hand.
Mental health is often the elephant in the room in many workplaces and all too often, employees are worried about talking to their managers for fear of judgement and discrimination and this can result in problems spiralling. So how can employers ensure that they have all the tools in place to create a happy and supportive workplace, here are just a few ideas.
