Looking after your employees
One in six workers experience a mental health problem at any one time, anxiety and stress are thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health issues, and the relationship between mental health and the workplace is a complex one.
Deloitte research helps us understand more about mental health and wellbeing at work. The report also makes a positive case for employers investing in mental health, with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.
Over the past few years, positive changes in workplaces include greater openness in discussing mental health at work, employers now have a duty of care and should allow employees time off work in the same way as for a physical illness.
There is still a significant rise in mental-health-related ‘presenteeism’, where employees have to work when they are not at their most productive, mental-health related absenteeism and staff turnover contributing to overall business coats.
Some changes to working practices are now found to make maintaining mental health more challenging for some, while an increased use of technology can enhance working practices, having the ability to work outside of normal working hours can also make it hard to disconnect from an ‘always-on’ culture.
11 MILLION BUSINESS WORKING DAY WERE LOST IN 2018 DUE TO STRESS.
BBC 6am News report 9th April 2019:
~There are massive issues with 'Presenteeism' when employees should be off work due to illness, however they are too scared be off due to concerns about the perception of being 'off sick'.

Therapy and Coaching isn't...
~Guiding, a guide usually knows the destination and how to get there.
~Training, involves new learning to increase knowledge, competence or strategies.
~Mentoring, when someone finds a good example they are likely to mirror their actions and behaviours.
