Poor mental health in the workplace costs UK employers between £33bn and £42bn every year In East Anglia, rural isolation is a particular cause of poor mental health.
The conference will help you understand these costs and show positive, practical actions you can take to address the issue – to the benefit of your employees and your bottom line.
Jon Neal, Chief Executive of Suffolk Mind, says: “Wellbeing and health in the workplace has never been so important, or had such a high profile as it does right now.
“It’s not just about social responsibility and being a considerate employer because it’s nice to be one – there is more and more evidence of its impact on the bottom line: on sickness and absence rates and motivation and performance.
“The most successful employers are those that create environments in which their teams can meet their physical and emotional needs in healthy ways.”
The all-day conference will feature speakers and discussions exploring:
· Best practice from professionals in a broad range of organisations
· The legal framework around the Equality Act, Disability Discrimination Act and Mental Health Act review
· How to put a mental health and wellbeing framework in place
