In what is considered by many to be the most challenging trading environment for a generation, there has never been a more opportune time for employers to embrace a Low Cost/High Perceived Value Benefit that delivers a phenomenal return on investment – reducing absence, preventing litigation and supporting staff. Welcome to a very different style of Employer Benefit – a benefit that is also greatly valued by employees.
The facts speak for themselves but what are the key drivers?
- 11.4 million working days are lost per annum due to stress, anxiety and depression (HSE).
- It is estimated that 27,000 cases of Cardiac Disease per annum are attributable to stress (HSE).
- The average length of absence in a stress related case is 27.4 days (UK HSE).
- 32% of Work Related stress cases result in an absence period which exceeds 32 days (THOR – Manchester University).
- Stress is the single most common cause for long term absence in non-manual workers (HSE).
