Mental health awareness week: business toolkit
When your employees feel good inside, they’re much more likely to perform better and take less time off work.
Mental Health Awareness Week is from 15 to 21 May. The focus this year is anxiety. Here’s why mental health should be a top priority for your business.
How does this affect your business?
The Health and Safety Executive estimate that more than 17 million work days were lost between 2021 and 2022 due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety.
