Mental Health Awareness Week is a great opportunity to start the conversation with your staff about mental health and stress in the workplace.
The day-to-day demands and pressures of work should not be a barrier to good mental health. If you want to attract and retain committed employees, prioritising the mental health of your staff needs to be core business in your organisation.
This has been brought into focus with the findings of recent Thriving at Work report which found that poor mental health of employees costs UK employers between £33 - £42 billion a year.
You can provide better support to your employees by creating a workplace where everyone feels valued and supported.
Here are some ideas for how you can take action on stress in your workplace this Mental Health Awareness Week.
