For many of us, work is a major part of our lives. It is where we spend much of our time, where we get our income and often where we make our friends. Having a fulfilling job can be good for your mental health and general wellbeing.
Good management and good mental health at work go hand in hand and there is strong evidence that workplaces with high levels of mental wellbeing are more productive.
As an employer, you play a crucial role in supporting staff that experience distress and/or mental health problems. Employers and employees both benefit from a psychologically healthy workplace:
· retention and recruitment
· health costs
· medical leave/disability
· workplace injuries
Training courses can be a way to improve the effectiveness of your workforce. It isn't just important to the company, it is vital. At Let's Talk we are constantly developing and updating resources that can be utilised to assist employers in supporting their workforce. By educating employees on the importance of mental health in the workplace, employers can make sure that their staff can perform to the best of their abilities.
