Resilience & Mental Wellbeing

Our mental, physical, and emotional resilience are the key determining factors in our overall wellbeing. 

Often, our mental resilience can impact our physical and emotional wellbeing, yet our mental resilience isn’t something that changes quickly. It changes gradually over time, depending on how we manage the pressures upon us.

That’s why we need a way to monitor and track it.

The impact of Mental Wellbeing on Business

For business, poor employee mental wellbeing has pervasive and far-reaching impacts, including:

Increased Risk

Employee mental health claims are growing rapidly and can cost 5 times more than a physical injury claim – with return to work being up to 3 times longer. This puts upwards pressure on workers compensation and insurance premiums.

Legislative changes to industrial manslaughter laws also introduces liability for executives regarding work related suicide.

Reputational risk can also hurt your standing as being an employer of preference if there is a negative market perception of how you invest in your employees mental wellbeing.

Quality - are you ISO certified?

If so, then you need to prepare for the forthcoming introduction of ISO 45003.

Focused on psychological wellbeing, this new standard instructs organisations to provide a suitable environment for work that addresses social, psychological, and physical factors.

ISO 45003 will help organisations develop practical strategies for a more sustainable and resilient workforce.

Reduced Productivity

Poor mental health equals poor productivity.

New work models including Work From Home (WFH) or hybrid approaches introduce new challenges for many employees who were never hired into these scenarios. Challenges now present at all ends of the spectrum – from Absenteeism to Presenteeism as well as Dis-connectedness to Over-connectedness.

Visibility remains a primary concern as the one hour at a time ‘Zoom face’ hides many mental wellbeing and productivity related issues.

Increased Cost

The costs of employees leaving due to mental wellbeing issues including recruitment fees, training, and slower ramp up time due to COVID, etc. can be as great as 40% of their base salary in new hire costs.

Equally, wrong hires add additional costs, so mental health and safety screening become far more important in the recruitment process. Insurance companies are now using mental wellbeing as an input to calculating risk and therefore pricing it into premiums.

The benefits of Neuroscience

Monitoring mental wellbeing has traditionally been via pulse checks and surveys which aren’t scientific in their approach.

Personal professional counselling has also been unaffordable and unscalable for the majority of businesses. 

By using world leading Neuroscience combined with sophisticated but easy to use technology, we can now view the invisible which gives us a scientific and repeatable benchmark for both the employees and the business.
