Poor mental health among employees incurs an estimated annual cost of up to £45 billion. The majority of this is the result of stress, depression and anxiety. Stigma and a lack of trust between employer and employee create barriers to resolution and exacerbate mental health challenges. Investing in workplace mental health interventions is highly beneficial, returning £5 to employers for every £1 invested, Deloitte (2020).
Workplace mobility problems, such as back pain, neck pain and repetitive strain injuries, affect 46% of the workforce. These challenges increase absenteeism and presenteeism, causing workflow disruptions, increased stress, decreased productivity, and suboptimal performance. By implementing well-being strategies, employees feel better cared for, and this fosters more outstanding commitment and retention of staff who outperform those who lack healthy work environments.
