WHAT'S THE RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT ?.
Mental health issues cost £1,700 for every employee in the UK.*
The average return on your investment is 5:1 **
By far the largest part of the business cost is in the form of reduced productivity among people who are at work but unwell: or ‘presenteeism’. This costs businesses almost twice as much as sickness absence relating to poor mental health. The remaining costs relate to staff turnover – people leaving their jobs as a result of poor mental health.
Businesses save money in three main ways.
Lower absenteeism with earlier interventions for poor mental health.
Lower staff turnover due to people leaving because of mental health crisis.
Preventative knowledge around stress and working whilst unwell or ‘presenteeism'.
Clearing pathways that remove stigma and discrimination.
Deloitte - 'Refreshing the case for investment' Jan 2022 * **
"The results of our updated return on investment (ROI) analysis show a complex but positive case for employers to invest in the mental health of their employees, with a return of £5 for every £1 spent (5:1)"
