Health Insurance & Protection - Mental health ‘top priority’ for employer wellbeing support

But poll shows employer and employee expectations don’t always tally.

Three quarters of employers feel it is their responsibility to support staff with mental health wellbeing, such as access to counselling and mental health first aiders, research shows.

The survey by GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector, found half of employees agreed with this sentiment.

Employers perceive mental health to be the number one priority for employees – and staff also prioritised this over other wellbeing concerns, the survey shows.

In other areas of health and wellbeing, however, employers and employees’ priorities do not always tally.

The survey found 70% of employers believe it is their responsibility to support staff with their physical wellbeing, for instance with access to physio and rehabilitation, but only 32% of employees felt this is the responsibility of their employer.
