The introduction of the Mental Health First Aid has increased the responsibility upon employers, Human Resources and Occupational Health to remove stigma and improve access to provisions. Wellbeing at work is now widely discussed but why is it important?
MHFA England 2016 reported the following:
- 48% of people have experienced mental health issues in their current role at work
- 95% of people who have been affected by MH said it affected their work – concentration (85%); time to complete (65%); impaired decision-making (54%); poor multi-tasking (48%); less patience (48%)
- Prominent conditions were anxiety, stress and depression
“A higher return on investment can be achieved by early interventions, such as organisation-wide culture change and education, than more in-depth support that may be needed at a later stage when a person is struggling” – Deloitte, 2020
New analysis completed by Deloitte in 2020 has found poor mental health costs UK employers £45 billion per year, rising 16% yearly since 2016 adding an extra £6 billion each year. Every £1 spent by employers on mental health, they receive £5 back in reduced absence and staff turnover. A greater understanding between the relationship of work and mental health should be in everyone’s interest because if neglected can be detrimental to an organisation. Organisations who recognise mental health doesn’t only support staff productivity and motivation but leads to fulfilled lives. Our Clinical Hypnotherapist at mindAbility has worked with many organisations to improve employee wellbeing. So, why not call today and find out how we can help you?
These are not just stats but people you will know. Burnout is also now recognised as a work specific diagnosis. It affects staff who consistently work to a high standard but are under prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained and unable to meet constant demands. As the stress continues, you begin to lose interest and motivation. This leads to exhaustion and increased feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, resentful and cynicism.
Equally, our personal lives are not left at the door when we arrive at work. A negative work environment can impact upon our personal life but this is also true when we experience trauma or stressful events at home. Remember the service you provide can only be as effective as the people delivering them so its essential to invest in the wellbeing of your staff.
