The case for Wellbeing

It is now accepted that mental health & wellbeing and business productivity are inextricably linked, with clear evidence demonstrating that effective wellbeing strategies create increased employee engagement and motivation, sustain morale and positively impact the bottom line.

While employers have recognised this, and are investing more than ever in wellbeing solutions, recent research has shown that this investment is not having the desired positive return on mental health & wellbeing.

In fact, the number of working days lost per person due to absenteeism or presenteeism has increased from 23 to 30 days (Britain’s Healthiest Workplaces, 2017). This is borne out by the latest research into workplace wellbeing across the UK and Ireland:
