Taking care of business - guide for small businesses
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has teamed up with Mind to publish guidance to help small firms manage mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and support their staff.
Conditions such as anxiety, depression and unmanageable stress affect one in six British workers each year, and can cost businesses up to £26 billion annually. However, simple steps can help to manage mental health issues in the workplace and promote the wellbeing of staff which could save firms up to one third of these costs.
The FSB has teamed up with Mind as many small businesses are in an ideal position to make the kind of simple, cost effective and non-bureaucratic changes that will help improve staff wellbeing and ultimately save money.
