Prioritising mental and physical wellbeing

1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem each year, with 1 in 6 reporting experiencing a common mental health problem in any given week (Mind UK). This means that there are employees within your organisation - maybe even yourself - who are struggling with mental health problems right now.

Our research shows that 61% of HR professionals identify mental health related issues as the main reason for absence, yet 31% of employees feel that their company doesn't take mental health seriously.

As employers, we must get better at initiating conversations around mental health and supporting our colleagues. This might be help in a moment of crisis, providing people with the tools to better understand and manage their own mental health, or taking steps to build a more positive and supportive workplace culture.

Making a healthy difference

The physical health and wellbeing of your people is just as important as their mental health. We're all human, leaving us susceptible to illness, bad nutritional or physical habits, and the stresses and strains of everyday life.

We spend 84,365 hours at work over the course of our career (AAT), so workplaces must start bridging the gap between treating employee-employer relationships as purely transactional and putting their people first.

Aim to create a culture that talks openly about health and wellbeing, offering support to staff on a human-to-human level. You will see your people flourish, which in turn will have a positive impact on your business objectives.
