Mental Health & Well-being in Business
It is well known that mental health is a growing concern for businesses and, since the pandemic, this has become even more evident. Poor mental health amongst employees can cause problems in terms of morale and productivity.
We strongly believe that developing a working environment where mental health issues or challenges can be discussed openly leads to a mentally healthy and resilient workforce - which in turn leads to SUCCESS!
What do you think the root causes are for this increase in mental health issues in the workplace?
Here are some of the reasons:
It is a much more competitive market.
We need to be leaner in how we deliver our products and services.
We are competing with the world wide web.
Lack of good leadership.
All of the above puts increased pressure on directors, managers and employees alike.
So, what could all this mean for your business?
Huge expectation on managers to deliver against their key performance indicators, often with limited time and resources.
Stress on management due lack of knowledge and necessary skills by managers to handle a mental health issue at work.
Potential reduction in performance and efficiency.
Potential increase in absenteeism.
Potential increase in presenteeism.
Drop in motivation, engagement and morale.
The need to re-allocate tasks and managing the workforce.
Recruiting temporary or new permanent staff .
All of the above results in increased costs, which can be significant, to your bottom line!
So, how can we help?
We train your managers so they have the knowledge and are fully-equipped to identify the symptoms of a mental health issue in an employee and can support them in the right way.
In turn, if employees are aware that their manager has this knowledge, they will feel more comfortable in coming forward to discuss any problems they are experiencing.
As a business you want to ensure your employees are working productively and efficiently at all times. Providing them with the right help early on will help to minimise long term sickness and reduce a negative impact on the business.
