Talk for Workplace Health

Talk for Health in the Workplace builds effective peer support groups for sustainable wellbeing. This in turn improves employee engagement.

Did you know that:

  • Engaged employees take an average of 2.69 sick days per year compared with 6.19 days taken by disengaged employees
  • Engaged employees are 87 per cent less likely to leave the organisation
  • Out of 75 drivers of employee engagement, the one rated as most important is the extent to which employees believe that their management had a sincere interest in their well-being

So implementing a programme for staff wellbeing makes good business sense:  it reduces sick leave and enhances staff loyalty and performance.

More on mental health and wellbeing at work.

Research commissioned by mental health charity Mind found that work is the most stressful factor in people’s lives:

  • One in three people (34%) say their work life is either very or quite stressful, more so than debt or financial problems (30%) or health (17%).

A sustainable solution for corporate clients is to run a Train the Trainer programme. This embeds Talk for Health as a peer support programme in your organisation over the long term.
