The business case for workplace wellbeing

The science is clear: when employees have good wellbeing and emotional agility they are better equipped to respond to positively to change and uncertainty, resulting in better business outcomes.

There are many benefits to improved employee wellbeing

Mental ill health such as anxiety and depression affects everyone in our community. Amongst other things, this can lead to reduced engagement, lower participation at work and lower productivity.

Proactive prevention is the best approach. Investing in the wellbeing and mental health of staff has been shown to deliver improvements in many areas.
