Employees who don’t feel they can talk openly about wellbeing could cost UK businesses almost

£35 billion per year

It’s easy to tell someone you’ve got a broken leg or a lingering head cold. It’s much harder to broach the idea that something just doesn’t feel quite right, though you can’t put your finger on what.

Reports have shown that organisations without a clear, supportive employee mental health policy see more cases of both absenteeism and presenteeism. Both of these have a proven, negative impact on performance, productivity and, ultimately, profit.

There’s an elephant in the room and it’s sitting quietly hoping nobody

will notice it’s having a hard time.

A program of wellbeing workshops in your organisation can proactively reduce the stigma of seeking help for those who need it the most.

For others, talking about the little things before they become the big things increases resilience so they can support colleagues, friends, and family through tougher times without compromising their own wellbeing.

Siendo can help you start the difficult conversations within your organisation with either one-off or a program of talks.

Book a no-obligation, 30-minute consultation call or email Rebecca to discuss where your employees might need some support.
