Deloitte’s newest research, places workplace mental health and wellbeing at a tipping point, with employers increasingly reviewing their activities in supporting employee mental health and wellbeing. Recognising the costs of poor mental health and wellbeing on today’s workforce, the publication is designed as a call to action for employers, whatever their current performance regarding mental health and wellbeing strategies.
Key findings include:
- progress towards greater awareness and recognition of mental health is occurring at a slower rate in the workplace, compared to conversations occurring in public spaces more generally
- costs associated with poor mental health and wellbeing result from absence costs, from presenteeism and turnover costs, as well as from a workforce that is not fully enthusiastic and engaged due to low mental wellbeing
- greater public awareness, increasing political attention and an increased emphasis on employer responsibilities are driving an increased interest in workplace mental health and wellbeing.
The report analyses the key implementation challenges currently faced by employers and details the actions required to make mental health and wellbeing a workplace reality.
