• What we do
    Revealing how
    to lead your people
    to better mental health

Why Should my organisation care about Mental Health:

Lead your people to better mental health by addressing the core standards for a healthy workplace as set out in the Government’s Thriving at Work report.

Mental Health problems within the UK workforce costs employers almost £35 billion in 2016, £10.6 billion in sickness absences, £21.2 billion in presenteeism (reduced productivity due to poor mental health), £3.1 billion replacing staff who left due to poor mental health.

Organisations across the country are recognising the impact that mental health problems can have upon their workforce and the knock-on effect on business. There is a crucial need for employers to create healthy work environments to minimise poor mental health, but also to support those experiencing mental health issues.

Leading your people helps the wealth of your business and the health of society and prevents undermining the wellbeing and happiness of employees (Centre for Mental Health, 2017).
