The paper refers to recent research from many sources, for example, research by Deloitte found that providing training for employees to spot and act on signs of poor mental health in themselves and others can provide a ROI of £6 for every £1 invested, while proactive training can provide an even higher ROI of up to £10 for every £1 invested.
Louise Newby, Director at Three Eggs, explains: “Employers who are aware of the importance of mental health and emotional wellbeing have an organisational culture of openness, acceptance and awareness, which includes mandatory training on wellbeing. As a result, more individuals will understand the link between their mental health and productivity and what to do when they or their colleagues experience challenging circumstances.”
