Event Details

Southampton Group


What is the impact of the mental health of employees on your organisation?


According to the 2019 CIPD Health and Wellbeing at Work report, whilst total absence levels continue to decline, the proportion of absence attributed to mental health is increasing. This session will consider:

  • What does the report tell us?
  • How does this relate to the challenges in your organisation?
  • What is the business impact of mental ill health on your organisation?
  • What could, and should, we be doing to increase awareness of mental health?


There is information and discussion everywhere about mental health and about how we should work together to reduce stigma and discrimination and actively support people with mental ill health.

We read that 1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year, and that it is the largest single source of burden of disease in the UK.

But what does this mean in reality? What should we as HR professionals be doing within our organisations?

This session will start by looking at the statistics. We will then discuss the cultural and human aspect, as well as the metrics that can support the business case.

As a result of attending this event you will:

  • Have an increased understanding of the financial and human cost of mental ill health in your organisation
  • Identify the barriers and challenges faced by people with mental health issues
  • Consider the actions you can take in your organisation to raise awareness and reduce stigma and discrimination


Refreshments will be served from 18:00hrs with the event starting promptly at 18:30hrs.
