According to a Government report dated December 2020, sickness absence due to mental ill health alone costs the UK economy more than £8 billion per year.

When other related illness are added absences cost around £29bn per year, with the average worker taking off 6.6 days per year as a result of sickness.

It therefore stands to reason that successful health and wellness initiatives would lead to significant cost-saving, as healthier people will be absent far less.

However, employee wellbeing goes far beyond just minimising health issues and health-related absences. The World Health Organisation consider wellbeing at work “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing” – so in truth it encompasses all areas of working life.

People bring their wellbeing, or lack of, to work with them every day. It shows up in their productivity levels, work quality, interactions with other associates and how they contribute to the business.

Promoting wellbeing at work can help create a positive working environment by minimising stress levels, improving employee satisfaction and engagement, and ultimately helping your employees thrive at work.

However, many wellbeing initiatives fall short of their full potential because they stand alone, isolated from the everyday business. To gain real benefit, employee wellbeing priorities must be integrated throughout the business, embedded in its culture, leadership and people management.


The impact of the past two years on people’s health and wellbeing can’t be overstated. At the same time, this unprecedented period in our working lives has also presented opportunities: it’s proven how fundamental employee wellbeing really is to business resilience, and it’s given businesses of all sizes the opportunity to learn from the experience of pivoting and implementing new ideas at speed.

It is an obvious but inconvenient truth that people don’t work like machines. In so many ways people are far superior to machines but if businesses truly want to benefit from the fullest potential of its people then it’s time to adopt a different approach.

It’s time to adopt a more ‘Human Business Centred’ approach to tackling the increasing number of problems we are facing.

It’s time to ‘put human into business’ because happier people make healthy teams, and healthier teams make more successful businesses.
