Corporate Wellness – why is it important?

Whatever the size of your organisation and regardless of how many staff are on your payroll, if your staff are happy, healthy and engaged it’s a well-known fact that your business will reap the rewards. From reduced levels of sickness absence to higher productivity and morale, fostering a culture where emotional wellbeing is prioritised is an essential part of your HR Strategy.

Lots of companies are finally putting mental health on their radar and working hard to remove the taboo and stigma that has previously been associated with discussions around mental health. And quite rightly so. A study by Deloitte suggests the costs of poor mental health costs employers in the UK a whopping £33 – 42 billion a year.  Their research also found that the return on investment of workplace mental health interventions is overwhelmingly positive, with an average ROI of 4:1. *

There are so many things you can do to support staff and we’d recommend a read of the ‘Thriving at Work’ report an independent review commissioned by the Government for some practical tips!
