Illness caused by mental health in the workplace costs over £30 billion each year, so it’s no surprise that employee wellbeing is now a serious concern for employers, who have a legal and moral duty of care towards their employees.
With some simple steps, we can improve the management of poor mental health in the workplace, enabling employers to save 30% or more on the mounting costs of sickness and avoid potential future litigation claims.
The Mente workplace technology solution offers businesses alternatives to classroom and workshop training. It focuses on reducing some of the pressure put on businesses by creating a unique approach to mental health.
Their purpose-built management system delivers mandatory bite-sized micro courses on mental health to employees and optional courses on wellbeing. It also allows employees to provide anonymous feedback on areas affecting their mental health within the workplace. This gives organisations the ability to comply with the HSE management standards through a listen and act process.
Their web-based system comes with an easy-to-use management reporting engine. You can check on learner progress within your organisation, keep a record of all learners who have completed mandatory training for audit purposes and view the anonymised real-time data collected, to ensure your workplace is mental health and compliance-friendly.
With signposting to national therapists, occupational health and HR employment lawyers, you can be sure to get all your mental health and safety requirements under one roof.
