BDaily News - Over one in ten UK employers don’t believe in supporting the emotional wellbeing of staff

Despite mental health matters being firmly in the public domain, over 700,000 UK businesses (12 per cent), do not believe in supporting the emotional and social wellbeing of their staff, according to research amongst HR decision makers undertaken on behalf of GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector.

Flexible working: most popular way to deliver emotional wellbeing support Of those businesses (88 per cent) that do believe they have an emotional duty of care for their employees, the most popular method to support staff is via flexible or agile working, with 43 per cent claiming to offer this opportunity.

Flexible working is often highly valued by staff but employers should not consider their ‘emotional support’ box ticked by offering this alone. There are a number of ways to address emotional wellbeing in the workplace, and even those employers who offer a full programme of internal initiatives, should also ensure that professional support and counselling are readily available for those most in need.
