One third of your life is spent at work. Not only does it provide a source of income but gives us a sense of purpose. Workplace wellbeing is important to any employee, and there is enough evidence to show that active, healthier and engaged employees are far more productive.
A workplace with high levels of stress and presenteeism can lead to issues such as burnout and exhaustion. On top of that, individuals experiencing poor mental health or major challenges in their home life may struggle at work.
Being at work doesn’t have to have a negative impact on people’s mental health. When a workplace is supportive and inclusive, it can help prevent further mental health issues and support those who are struggling. As an employer, it is your responsibility to provide a workplace where:
- Staff wellbeing is a priority
- People experiencing issues can openly talk without any fear of stigma
- There is an ‘Open Door Policy’
- People are given space to grow and develop their skills
