Managing mental health in the workplace

12 February 2019, London

It’s never been more important for employers to engage with employees about their mental health; 15% of people at work have symptoms of an existing mental health condition.  

This creates an annual cost to employers of up to £42 billion annually with over 50% of costs coming from presenteeism, when individuals are less productive at work due to poor mental health and additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.  

This event aims to provide a practical guide to promoting positive outcomes and avoiding legal pitfalls.  It will be useful to business leaders, HR or health and safety professionals involved in managing people and responsible for employee well-being and absence.
