Mental illness is more prevalent than many employers realise. Research indicates that job stressors and other related psychological hazards are emerging as the leading contributors to the burden of occupational disease and injury. The fast changing environment as well as the political and economic uncertainty employees find themselves in also has a bearing on mental distress. In Africa, the absenteeism and presentism productivity losses associated with mental health issues are estimated at 28 days a year for anxiety disorders and 27 days per year for depression. The costs associated with poor mental health make a strong business case for dealing with mental health and well-being in the workplace.

Reap a tangible reward of reduced costs and high performance and productivity in your organization by booking this workshop. In addition, internationally employers acknowledge that wellness programs have direct impact on a company’s bottom line. Nevertheless, today, the biggest challenge facing organizations is getting employees to actively “engage” in their health and wellness. For over a decade, research has been showing the effectiveness of Employee Wellness Programs.
