Event description
Make a difference to the mental health and wellbeing of your employees and colleagues by signing the Time to Change Employer Pledge.

About this Event

Mental health is an issue organisations cannot ignore

  • 1 in 4 British workers are affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year
  • Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year
  • 95% of employees calling in sick with stress give a different reason.

Looking after the mental health of employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, staff wellbeing, productivity and retention.

What is the Time to Change Employer Pledge?

When an organisation signs the Employer Pledge, they develop an action plan that demonstrates their commitment to change how people think and act about mental health in the workplace and makes sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported.

By signing the Pledge they join a growing movement of more than 1,300 employers in England across all sectors from FTSE 100 companies and leading retailers to government departments and local authorities.

Employers also benefit from the FREE, ongoing specialised support and training offered through Time to Change.

What support is there for employers considering making a pledge?
