WELLBEING - THE FACTS

The Alarming Cost Of Absence

In 2016 surveys showed there were 12.5 million days lost to stress [1], with the average cost of ‘sick’ days being £618 per day [2]. This adds up! meaning workplace stress cost the UK economy a staggering total of £6,427,200,000.

Jump forward to 2017 and those figures have sky rocketed:

"Excessive stress at work is causing an epidemic of depression and anxiety, costing the British economy about £100bn a year in lost output" Mind - Mental Health Charity 

Presenteeism (staff turning up ill, unproductive) is also on the rise, with employees coming to work disengaged, tired, unmotivated and too stressed to work which is also costing employers dearly. We are the only wellbeing training provider in Norfolk incorporating mindfulness and hypnosis to effectively tackle this head on.

Anxiety/Stress/Depression: What are the signs?

 
 

Depression: What are the signs? Are they obvious?

The symptoms of depression can be complex and vary widely from person to person and often overlooked.  There are many symptoms of depression and we all show different signs. The most common are listed below.

The psychological symptoms of depression include:

  • continuous low mood/sadness, feeling hopeless and/or helpless

  • low self-esteem, feeling tearful or feeling guilt-ridden

  • feeling irritable and intolerant of others 

  • having no motivation or interest in things - 'what's the point?'

  • finding it difficult to make decisions or choose

  • no longer getting any enjoyment out of life like you used to

  • feeling anxious or worried about things

  • having suicidal thoughts or thoughts of harming yourself

The physical symptoms of depression include:

  • moving or speaking more slowly than usual - lethargy

  • changes in your appetite or weight (usually decreased, but sometimes increased) 

  • constipation 

  • unexplained aches and pains can occur along with a lack of energy

  • low sex drive (Men & Women), changes to your menstrual cycle

  • disturbed sleep – for example, finding it difficult to fall asleep or waking up early in the morning

The social symptoms of depression include:

  • not doing well at work

  • avoiding contact with friends or colleagues and reduced social activities

  • neglecting your hobbies or interests

  • having difficulties in your home and family life

Why should you take action?

There are many reasons why tackling staff wellbeing, anxiety and stress is critical in the workplace, the most obvious being the huge savings through reduced costs of sick pay, sickness cover, overtime and recruitment, not to mention the legal requirements. However there are many more benefits of acting now such as:

  • Improved return on investment in training and development

  • Improved customer care and relationships with clients and suppliers

  • People work harder and perform better – increasing their earning power

  • People feel that they are part of a team and the decision-making process, so accept change better

  • People feel more motivated and committed to their work

  • Reduced staff turnover and intention to leave, so improving retention

  • Fewer days lost to sickness and absenteeism

  • Improved work quality

The list of benefits of acting now are almost endless.

A way forward

It's no secret that the best employees have a positive attitude and work ethic. They care about their work and naturally seem to 'cope' with whatever is thrown at them.

 

"If I had ten more people like this..." is a familiar saying for many employers...

Our training is designed to tap into that elusive quality and make it available to everyone. Imagine a team of staff able to draw upon their powerful subconscious mind to:

  • Overcome obstacles 

  • Reframe the way they view change

  • Utilise powerful techniques to remain less stressed

  • Combat anxiety before it occurs

  • Reduce their risk of depression

  • Retain more of their training

Traditional investment in training for employees has always focused on the same format: Talk, listen, try, hope it works....The big problem is that we rapidly forget it all....

How much do we forget?

Research on the 'forgetting curve' shows: 

 

  • Within one hour, people will have forgotten an average of 50 percent of the information presented

  • Within 24 hours, they have forgotten an average of 70 percent of new information

  • And within a week, forgetting claims an average of 90 percent

 

Some people remember more or less, but in general, the retention is very poor, and it is the hidden secret of corporate training.
