Stress in the workplace is rising and pressure on the job is having a detrimental effect on wellbeing. Our first Wellbeing Index shines a spotlight on the mental health crisis facing the UK’s workplaces and the serious impact stress can have on employees. Key stats include:
61% of HR professionals identify mental health related issues as the main reason for absence
40% of workers have taken time off work due to mental ill health, but have given their employer a different reason for their absence
67% of HR professionals say that leavism – employees working outside of contracted hours, on annual leave and on sick days – is a problem in their organisation
31% of workers feel that their company doesn’t take mental health seriously
We surveyed UK employees and HR professionals to create a barometer of the nation’s wellbeing across key areas; financial, physical, mental and social wellbeing.
Our Wellbeing Index identifies trends in wellbeing, threats that face UK businesses and explores how employers and employees can build a happier, healthier and more productive nation.
