Corporate Services

The financial and social costs of employee absences due to mental health problems are increasing exponentially in London. A study carried out in 2003 by the Centre for Mental Health calculated that these costs amounted to £77.4 billion. Updated figures for the 2009 and 2010 financial year indicate that this figure has risen to £105.2 billion.

Early recognition of problems within the workplace is the key to preventing absenteeism and presenteeism (employees that are present at work but are performing below the expected standard). Identifying issues before an absence occurs or intervening immediately will prevent long term problems and associated loss of productivity.

Running an organisation in London can be stressful at the best of times; we understand the challenges of juggling competing priorities. Maintaining a home life balance while managing a business in the bustling city can be a delicate balancing act. At times, the added stress of workplace conflict and other issues may compromise the targets you want to achieve. Our experience of supporting staff within the corporate world in London has revealed the following reasons for staff sickness and staff leaving:

  • Lack of job security (following the rise of zero hour contracts)
  • Ineffective support from line management
  • Lack of continued professional development
