Description

The pandemic has shone a spotlight on the topic of mental health for employers and employees, alike. Many of us have experienced, first-hand how living with high levels of uncertainty, constant change and traumatic events can lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression and other mental health problems. As well as dealing with issues in their personal lives, employees have also had to cope with massive changes in the workplace, including being furloughed, working from home for long periods, or having to work longer shifts to cover for absent team members. All of these experiences are likely to have taken their toll on the mental health and wellbeing of our workforce.

Even before the pandemic, there had been a growing awareness amongst employers of the organisational costs of poor employee mental health. Pre-pandemic research identified that employee mental health problems were costing UK businesses between £33 billion and £42 billion a year and the economy overall, a huge £100 billion.

Whilst the full repercussions of the pandemic on the mental health of the workforce are, unfortunately, yet to be realized, it is clear that employers should make tackling mental health at work a strategic priority.

Whilst an increase in awareness amongst employers is welcome, it is not enough on its own. Many business owners and managers still don’t have a good understanding of the causes of mental health problems or feel confident enough to have conversations with employees about their mental health. They are also often not clear on the types of organisational interventions that can have the most positive impact on their employees’ wellbeing.

This webinar will provide an overview of mental health problems and how the workplace can reduce or exacerbate their impact. It will also offer some practical ways in which employers can support the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce.
