Why we should encourage positive mental wellbeing at work

Healthy employees,
healthy businesses

“Now more than ever, it is vital we open up and support each other’s mental health.”

Harriet Venn, Partnership Manager and Mental Health Ambassador of Free Courses in England and Free Staff Training discusses the reasons why employers should prioritise mental health and well-being in the workplace and the benefits of doing so…

The majority of our life is spent at work and in the wake of Covid, now more than ever, it is vital we open up and support each other’s mental health.

Four reasons why we should encourage positive mental wellbeing at work

1. It increases productivity

All the best businesses know that success starts with its people. 

Supporting employee’s mental health will only encourage a happy workforce which will increase productivity.  Therefore, it is essential that employee wellbeing is embedded into businesses because it will lead to employees performing at their best and companies will certainly reap the benefits through optimum efficiency.

2. It promotes a great working culture

In the modern world there is a growing emphasis on working culture and diversity. Employees want to work for businesses that value and support them. 

Those that struggle with mental health problems are more likely to leave their job or take time off. If a company will support an employee’s mental health with treatment and recovery it shows they are responsible for and want to encourage employee wellbeing.  A great working environment will only encourage staff loyalty and job satisfaction.

3. Neglecting mental health can be detrimental

Daily incidents at work can lead to a build-up of stress, burnouts and tension in the workplace. 

Neglecting employee wellbeing will cause businesses to lose money as mental illness leads to absences and prolonged periods of time off work. Businesses must be proactive in supporting their employee’s mental health as it will create a healthier workforce.

4. It’s the future

Life after Covid has certainly increased the awareness of mental health issues! It is now time to remove the stigma related to mental health. 

Education is the starting point! Businesses are now expected to provide a duty of care to their staff. If businesses ensure their staff enrol on courses, then their workforce will be understanding and supportive when mental health issues arise. If we learn about mental health then we are promoting a healthier future.

About the Author...

Harriet believes that “mental health is a very misunderstood topic. Even to this day, the stigma around mental health is still prevalent and preventing people from opening up. Individuals are still suffering in silence and this needs to change! Lets educate ourselves, change the stigma and normalise conversations about mental health.“

Harriet joined Free Courses in England in early 2021 with a passion to educate the masses and influence change regarding mental health. Harriet works with multiple businesses, schools, organisations and charities, providing them access to our free mental health courses to encourage employee wellbeing and support.
