Reward Guide - Beating the Monday Blues

By Kimberley Dondo 15 January 2018.

January 15 2018 has been dubbed Blue Monday as it has been calculated to be the most depressing day of the year

Blue Monday typically falls on the third Monday of January and it is said that the weather, our bank balances and returning to work after the festive season all combine to create a feeling of melancholia on this day.

While the calculations may not be particularly scientific as it was a PR stunt to begin with, we can’t dismiss the fact that January can be one of the gloomiest months in the year...

...Two-thirds of employers have admitted to not utilising all the benefits of Group Risk products to support staff with mental health issues. Group risk not only supports those in times of need but also works as a preventative method, providing services such as access to GP services and health tracking apps.

Katharine Moxham, spokesperson for GRiD says: “The support available via group risks products is wide-ranging, from employee assistance programmes and fast-track access to counselling through to support for staff affected by a colleague’s stress. It can also include mental health first-aid training for managers to spot the signs of mental ill health and stress so they can be more effective in signposting staff to help.”
