Why Is Mental Health so important in the workplace?
Duty of Care: Employers have a legal duty of care for mental wellbeing of employees. Putting a proactive programme in place demonstrates your organisation’s commitment.
There is an expectation from talent for organisations to support mental health, so a programme such as ours will give real competitive advantage.
Workplaces that support mental health are more likely to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and therefore benefit from associated economic gains.
