The latest CIPD annual report found that stress is the most common cause of long-term absence in non-manual workers, costing organisations around £3.7 billion annually. 20% of employers also saw an increase in mental health problems amongst their workforce over the last year, highlighting the urgent need for employers to invest in the mental wellbeing of their workforce. But with so much emphasis on stress ‘management’ and reducing the effects and consequences of mental health problems, what about prevention being better than cure?
This event is aimed at helping you take a proactive approach to tackling the real problems facing your workplace.
