There are many reasons why addressing wellbeing in the workplace is important and beneficial.

There are legal requirements and national guidance around an employers obligations.

Research has shown a financial return on investment of between £4 and £9 per pound invested in wellbeing to prevent prolonged distress and mental ill health. 

Organisations which create a supportive open culture around wellbeing can see a significant difference in how their employees see themselves, how they feel about their work, each other and what they can achieve. 

When distress is not supported and managed, it can lead to loss of productivity, absenteeism, presenteeism, staff turnover and conflict. Each of these will result in a financial impact on the business. Moreover it is never anyone’s fault, rarely simple and impacts not only on the sufferer  but their family and team. It can happen to any of us.

Sometimes processes designed to support staff  can make things worse for both parties. Atrium have experience in bridging gaps in understanding to optimise outcomes for people and organisations to mitigate negative effects.
