For some, there is still a stigma attached to experiencing poor mental health and it is important to change our way of thinking to one that recognises the need for mental and emotional support at all levels.
Our mental health is just as important as our physical well-being but not everyone recognises that this is the case. CSG fully endorses the campaign of ending the stigma of mental ill-health and discrimination. We support the commitment of organisations to encourage employees to speak up and speak out about stress-related issues.
When employees spend the vast majority of their lives in their offices, it’s our duty to help ensure that working environments are designed to foster positive wellbeing.
Evidence has proven that improving the mental health of your employees can have a direct impact on improving sickness levels, staff retention rates, morale, engagement levels, the ability to attract top talent, and the bottom line of your business.
Sickness absence costs the UK economy over £14bn per year, £554 per employee [HSE]. Can your organisation afford to ignore employee wellbeing; risking increased absenteeism, poor performance, low morale and higher costs? Poor mental health costs UK employers £39.9 billion each year [Centre for Mental Health]. Don’t let it cost you.
