One in six British workers in the UK will experience mental health issues like anxiety, depression and stress every year. The estimated annual cost of mental ill-health to UK employers is between £33 billion and £44 billion. Within the Retail sector, the annual cost of poor mental health to employers is between £777 and £989 per person per year.

Employers have a responsibility to support staff and promote positive mental health in the workplace. But it’s about more than your duty of care.

When it comes to wellbeing, what’s good for your people is good for your business. Positively managing mental health underpins good employee engagement and benefits everyone. Staff with good mental health will have good attendance levels, be more productive and provide a more positive customer experience.

We’ve teamed up with Aon, a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, to provide you with expert advice, tested strategies and practical tools to help you improve the mental health of your workforce, and the financial health of your business.
