HOW MENTALLY HEALTHY IS YOUR WORKPLACE?

The complex demanding environments of the 21st Century are well recognised in being responsible for the increasing rates of stress and burnout. Unchecked, chronic stress can lead to mental health difficulties, decreased productivity, challenging working relationships as well as additional pressures on managers. Lower engagement of staff inevitably leads to increased sickness rates and higher turnover of staff. Long term ill health of an employee can be costly and not infrequently culminates in industrial tribunal proceedings and compensation claims. Nevertheless, a third of all organisations that included stress among their top 5 causes of absence are not taking any steps to address it. The cost is economic as well as human.
