The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, states in their latest news that there is a strong business case for organisations to promote good physical and mental health for all staff. Actively promoting staff wellbeing leads to greater staff productivity, morale and retention, and reduced sickness absence.
The CIPD annual absence management survey show, produced in partnership with Simplyhealth, shows that mental health issues are a major cause of long term sickness absence from work. The number of employers citing a rise in reported mental health problems has risen significantly since 2009, when 24% of employers saw a rise in reported mental health. This figure rose to 42% in 2013 and has remained at this high level since.
