How do you support your employees with their Mental health?
A recent Deloitte report has estimated that the total annual cost of poor mental health for employers has increased by 25% since 2019.
Work can be mentally demanding at times, but when it’s happening frequently or over a long period of time, it can lead to stress and really start to affect our physical and mental health.
Building a supportive workplace, where workers look out for each other, feel able to talk about how they are feeling and relationships are positive, can help to reduce and prevent, stress developing.
The law requires employers to assess the potential risk from work related stress and act on it. Here are ways in which that can be done:
1. reach out and have the conversations
2. recognise the signs of stress
3. respond to any risks identified
4. reflect on what’s happened
5. make it routine
