Workplace Wellbeing in Wales

Looking after your employees’ mental health isn’t just the right thing to do – it also means better performance, less time off sick and more loyal staff.

With the support of Welsh Government, we're supporting businesses in Wales to promote better employee mental health.

To do this, we've developed a series of downloadable bilingual resources to help employers better understand what makes for a mentally healthy workplace, and how to put simple, low cost measures in place to achieve this.

We also have a new opportunity for Welsh SME's to take part in our Workplace Wellbeing Index for free.

And we're working with our colleagues at Time to Change Wales to provide an information and advice package for employers in Wales to help manage workplace mental health.
