Monday morning and the call comes in from a member of your team. They’re not coming in to work… illness.
But are you sure it’s the migraine they say it is? A headache? The Flu?
Chances are, it could be something else. Something that they’d rather not divulge to you.
It could be stress that’s keeping them away from work.
The UK economy loses more than £17 billion a year through workplace absenteeism, therefore it is now becoming even more important for companies to start tackling issues such as stress in the workplace.
Mental health amongst employers is still a taboo subject but some employers are beginning to realise the impact on business and productivity.
Currently one in six employees are thought to suffer from mental health problems such as stress, depression or anxiety.
