Work Place Health and Wellbeing

The BMG Research Employee Panel (made up of a representative sample of 1,000 UK employees) was surveyed in March 2017. We see the impact of mental health on the UK workforce, and how line managers and employers play a critical role in supporting staff through effective conversations and Wellbeing Strategies.

There are clear benefits to having a Wellbeing Strategy for both employees and businesses
  • Employees who work for an organisation that has a Wellbeing Strategy are twice as likely to believe their employer genuinely cares about their wellbeing.
  • Why is this important? Because levels of employee engagement increase by 31% points amongst employees who believe their employer cares about their wellbeing.
  • So what’s the issue? Just 28% of employees surveyed say their employer has a Wellbeing Strategy, and this drops to just 13% of employers of up to 250 staff.

You can view part on of this research on the BMG website.
