Is Poor Mental Health Costing Your Business?

A recent BBC article, “Why are we so ill? The working-age health crisis,” highlights a concerning trend: mental health issues are on the rise in the UK workforce. This isn’t just a human cost – it’s a significant financial burden on businesses too.

Studies show poor mental well-being and stress cost UK employers a staggering £45 billion to £102 billion annually. This translates to lost productivity, increased absenteeism, and high staff turnover.

Why is this happening now?

The current cost of living crisis is a major factor. With rising prices and economic uncertainty, employees are feeling overwhelmed and stressed. This financial strain adds to existing pressures at work, creating a perfect storm for mental health issues.
