Encouraging wellness at work is beneficial not just for employees, but organisations as well. Happier, healthier and more resilient employees lead to greater morale, increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and presenteeism and ultimately benefits workplace's bottom line.
With 1 in 5 employees likely to be experiencing a mental health condition at any given time, the business case is clear; for every $1 invested in a mentally healthy workplace, the return on investment is $2.30.
