Workplace Wellbeing

The Workplace Wellbeing: HMRC Tool Guide is an online guide for employers who are reconsidering their workplace wellness costs and needs. Or for any employee thinking about workplace wellness in their business. 

The tool allows employers to see the cost of poor workplace wellbeing to their business. Likewise, there are key figures on wellness initiatives and training. This comprehensive guide will offer you all you need to know to make wellbeing changes in your workplace.

Benefits of workplace wellness training initiatives like
Mental Health First Aid include:

  • Reduced absenteeism and presenteeism.

    If you take care of your employees’ health there is less risk of them taking long periods of time off work due to poor wellbeing (absenteeism). Additionally, when employees are at work, there is more chance they will be productive and not suffer from presenteeism (when employees are present at work but have low productivity).

  • Improved morale and staff retention.
    Company morale is improved by having a more content workforce. Employees are also more likely to stay with a company, which saves companies the time and cost of recruiting.
