Better mental health among workers results in increased work output and reduced sick and other leave.
Research has shown that every dollar spent on supporting workers with mental health issues yields close to a 500 per cent return in improved productivity.
Furthermore, the proportion of all new Worksafe injury claims related to mental health has grown from 9 per cent in 2008, to 13 per cent in 2020.
This trend is expected to continue, especially following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Traditionally, organisations have invested in physical health and safety with policies, procedures and training. Investment in mental health in the workplace has been less common.
Yet it is more important now than ever
