HR
Investing in your employees to save a fortune!
In 2018/19 602,000 workers in the UK suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety and 12.8 million working days were lost as a result.

The cost to businesses in the UK of poor mental health at work is estimated to be over £35 billion per year. However, you can protect your business from the costs of poor mental health by taking action that will keep your staff and boost productivity. It doesn’t have to be rocket science or cost a fortune and, in the long-term, it can save your business thousands of pounds, improve retention and morale and improve employer feedback scores. Who doesn’t want to do that?

You will learn:
  • Understand your duty of care as an employer
  • How to support an employee with poor mental health to remain in or return to work
  • How to implement a Mental Health Toolkit into your business to ensure it remains ‘Business as usual!’
  • Understand the impact on staff retention and improved employee engagement feedback for a happier healthier company.
