Guide for employers: What makes people too ill to work?
Secondsight, the award winning employee benefits division of Foster Denovo, has launched a wellbeing guide for employers, in a bid to address the areas that make people too ill to work and how this issue can be combated.
The document provides a 360° look at wellness in the workplace from the aspects of body, mind and money – covering the causes of short- and long-term absences. Morag Livingston, group risk and healthcare manager at Secondsight, said:
“When it comes to ‘health’, the general consensus is around being fit for life – both mentally and physically.”
According to the 2016 CIPD Employee Outlook: ‘Focus on Mental Health in the Workplace‘, almost a third (31%) of the over 2,000 employees surveyed said they have experienced a mental health problem at some point during their working life.
