The business case

Although there are many ‘common sense’ reasons for improving mental health literacy at work, the most recent and comprehensive report outlines the business case for doing this. Following the Stevenson-Farmer Review in 2017, the Deloitte Mental Health & Employers review in 2020 highlighted that:

The challenges:

  • The cost of poor mental health to employers has increased by 16% to around £45bn, equivalent to an average of £1716 per employee in the private.
  • This cost is higher in Finance, Insurance, Real Estate and Professional Services – up to £3300 per employee.
  • The cost of absence has dropped but the cost of presenteeism has exploded to nearly £30bn out of the total cost of £45bn.
  • Leavism has been cited as a significant new factor – the practice of taking annual leave to cover sickness or to catch up on workload.
  • Over half of employees said they would not discuss mental health with their manager.
  • Workload, conflicting priorities, unachievable targets and lack of support are the top issues that cause mental Ill-health at work.
  • Young people aged 16-25 bear the brunt of poor mental health at work.

There is hope:

  • The return on investment of workplace mental health interventions has increased from £4.00 for every £1 spent to £5.00 for every £1 – demonstrating a clear business case for budget holders.
  • Focusing on providing training universally or to targeted groups has a positive impact on the ROI of mental health interventions. This could be as high as £10 for every £1 spent for line manager training.
  • Most of the middle to larger range of UK employers are now implementing pro-active mental health and well-being strategies, including comprehensive training programmes.
