Mental health is costing UK employers up to £42 billion* a year in lost productivity, absenteeism and presenteeism. Statistics published by Time to Change, state that one in four British workers are affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year and that mental ill-health is the country’s leading cause of workplace absence – costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year. Many studies highlight coaching’s potential for building resilience and improving wellbeing and mental and physical health by helping people manage stress better.
