Why should your business take action on mental health? Here are some compelling reasons.
A mentally healthy workplace reduces costs
Untreated mental health conditions cost Australian employers $10.9 billion every year through absenteeism, reduced productivity and compensation claims.
Other effects of a mentally unhealthy workplace include poor morale and staff engagement, high staff turnover and potential penalties for breaches of work health and safety legislation.
The business’s reputation is also at risk among potential clients, customers and employees.
