Taking care of your staff

Our research confirms that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers:

  • More than one in five (21 per cent) agreed that they had called in sick to avoid work when asked how workplace stress had affected them
  • 14 per cent agreed that they had resigned and 42 per cent had considered resigning when asked how workplace stress had affected them

  • 30 per cent of staff disagreed with the statement ‘I would feel able to talk openly with my line manager if I was feeling stressed’

  • 56 per cent of employers said they would like to do more to improve staff wellbeing but don't feel they have the right training or guidance

Starting a conversation about mental health doesn’t have to be difficult
