Mental health and employers: refreshing the case for investment - report

Posted 04.02.2020

With one in six workers experiencing a mental health problem at any one time, and stress thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health issues, the relationship between mental health and the workplace is a complex one.

Mental health and employers: refreshing the case for investment, builds on previous Deloitte research published in 2017 to help us understand more about mental health and wellbeing in today’s labour market. The report also makes a positive case for employers investing in mental health, with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.

Since the first report, Deloitte has found that positive changes in workplaces include greater openness in discussing mental health at work, in larger employers in particular, and more provision of support overall.

Read the report to find out more about:

  • The cost of poor mental health at work
  • The biggest impacts on mental health in the workplace
  • Why employers should invest in mental health interventions
  • How employers can take action
