One in four of us in the UK will be affected by a mental health problem in any given year, and of these around four million will also struggle will their financial wellbeing.
Mental health conditions are the second highest cause of absences reported to the Health & Safety Executive and this figure is rising. The cost to UK employers of mental health issues among employees is estimated at £26 billion per year, and 40% of sick days taken are due to mental health problems
As part of the Group’s ambition to help Britain prosper, we are committed to tackling social and economic issues, addressing inequality, supporting disadvantaged people and championing Britain’s diversity.
Organisations perform best for customers when they have a focused, engaged and healthy workforce so it’s in everyone’s best interests to have good mental health and wellbeing.
In the workplace, mental health can be a taboo subject and one we tend to focus on it when things go wrong. By raising awareness of mental health and taking action to promote healthy wellbeing, we are breaking down the stigmas associated with mental health issues, and helping our colleagues to recognise the signs and feel confident and equipped to support customers and each other.
