My Wellbeing Training Centre

Why do we need to implement a Workplace Wellbeing Culture & Strategy into our Organisation?

In our lives we daily face challenges of which a number of these increase our stress levels or can sometimes initiate triggers in our brain, which then lead to either positive or negative behaviours. This can have a varying degree of outcomes, some of which can be serious and distressful.

Each one of us handle matters in different ways, but deep down there will often come a point where our body cannot physically or mentally cope anymore and it is at this juncture when Mental Health Illness can start to prevail.

Therefore, it is fundamentally important that we take proactive & preventative intervention into our own Mental Health & Wellbeing, so to prevent latter trauma in a reactive situation.

Here are just some of the main statistics reported by The Mental Health Foundation:

  • Mental health problems are one of the main causes of the overall disease burden worldwide.
  • Mental health and behavioural problems (e.g. depression, anxiety and drug use) are reported to be the primary drivers of disability worldwide, causing over 40 million years of disability in 20 to 29-year-olds.
  • Major depression is thought to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide and a major contributor to the burden of suicide and ischemic heart disease.
  • It is estimated that 1 in 4 people in the past week experienced a common mental health problem

Therefore, one proactive immediate measure companies can take is investing in a “Workplace Wellbeing Solution”, as this will act as a business driver and lead to a significant reduction in costs & sickness absence rates to your business, whilst also supporting the most important element to any business, your "Employee’s Wellbeing"

This doesn't need to be seen as an additional cost to your business either, but one that enhances your Employees Personal Development, such as Positive Wellbeing, Leadership, Rapport Building, Communication Skills, Resilience Strengthening and Teamwork.

Let’s look at some of the key facts surrounding workplace mental health specifically for you:

  • 1 in 4 of us will suffer from some form of mental health problem during our lives.
  • Mental ill health costs UK employers £34.9 billion per year (MHFA England).
  • Absence Costs Businesses £554 per Employee Annually
  • Employees take an average of 5.3 days of sickness absence each year.
  • 50% of all employees have no sickness absence each year.
  • 5% of employees covered by the survey had been absent due to sickness for a continuous period of 4 weeks or more.
