Recent years have seen employers taking an increasingly proactive and preventative approach in managing employee health and wellness. While physical health and wellbeing is a topic that is frequently discussed in the corporate space, mental health and wellbeing on the other hand is often woefully neglected or sidelined due to its status as a taboo subject in the society, a lack of awareness on how mental health and wellbeing strategies would work in the workplace, and the prevalent perception amongst business stakeholders that mental wellbeing is of secondary importance to its physical counterpart.
However, research has shown that poor mental health amongst staff has severely detrimental effects on business productivity and company morale, and could cause employers significant costs through increased absenteeism, presenteeism and high turnover rates.
