“Mental Health is fundamental to our collective and individual ability as humans to think, emote, interact with each other, earn a living and enjoy life.” – The World Health Organisation

I’m sure that it will come as no surprise that Covid has had a huge impact on mental health, but what is staggering is that the increase in workplace mental health injuries have risen by 80% since 2017.

This number means it’s likely that to some some degree the mental health of your team is costing your business. 

It’s estimated that each individual with a mental health condition costs an organisation 378 working hours in lost productivity each year. 

Just think, that’s almost 10 weeks a year of unproductive work time that your business is paying for.

Absenteeism and presenteeism, where staff at work physically but mentally checked out and somewhere else can seriously impact the profitability of your business. 

Of course important as they are, it’s not just about the numbers, because the beating heart of your business is your team.

A healthy, happy team makes commercial and cultural sense, making your business stronger and more profitable. Innovative leaders recognise that in the current environment a healthy team = healthy business.

Sadly though, mental health is the worlds leading cause of disability.

The ongoing effects that that manifest when people are continually living with anxiety and depression are very real. There’s an increased risk of coronary disease and heart attack, parkinsons disease, arthritis, asthma, stroke, cancer, diabetes and a lower immune system. 

There is some good news though, it’s now super simple for you to create an environment that’s beneficial for your team and your business, and all you need to do to get started is to get in touch and schedule a no stress call.
