Supporting the mental health of your employees is more than an ethical duty. It also makes business sense. Businesses who take their obligations seriously are better able to attract and retain skilled workers, can benefit from a productivity boost and demonstrate their social responsibility.
Around 25% of the UK population is expected to experience a mental health issue this year1, so understanding mental health and providing support could make a big difference.
Paul Gordon, Managing Director for SME and Mid-Corporates at Lloyds Banking Group explains, “Low productivity has been costing the UK for many years, and one of the contributing factors is the way employees feel about the company that they work for. We know that there is a correlation between creating a more supportive culture that will help companies retain and attract skilled workers and the resulting boost in productivity and output that drives, which is crucial to helping Britain prosper.”
