Stress remains the number one cause of absence from work, and mental health conditions (including stress anxiety and depression) are the single most widespread cause of long-term absence among both manual and non-manual workers. Mental health in the workplace is now a critical priority for employers.

Many employers understand the benefits of investing in workplace health and employee wellbeing, and by creating an environment that offers access to specialist psychological and physical support and encouraging early intervention they can reduce employee risk factors and build a resilient workforce.

Studies show that employees who are positive about employers who demonstrate care and concern for employee health and wellbeing are four times more likely to stay. Business leaders who are good role models and understand that employee health and well-being and engagement are a competitive advantage will reap the rewards.

Vital Topics is our annual lecture series, generously supported by The Royal Bank of Scotland
