Employees are the most valuable asset inside any business or organisation, yet according to Health & Safety Executive UK, 12.5 million working days were lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17 and even more shockingly, 526,000 workers suffered from work related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long standing) in 2016/17.
It doesn’t take a lot to guess the amount of absenteeism or staff turn over as a result of these numbers and on the flip side, if emotionally stretched staff are in work, issues of workplace conflict will present because there is no where else for the burnt out energy, internal pressure and frustration to go!
Coaching and emotional support in the workplace naturally reduces absenteeism by addressing the underlying cause of stress and companies who offer this service to their staff, 50% of staff taking time off can be prevented, not to mention a happier, healthier connected environment that is thriving.
You see, emotions drive people and people drive performance so why would businesses ignore the necessity of an independent coach who employees can talk to in confidence and work through personal challenges? You encourage or even provide a gym membership for staff so why not support their emotions and mind health too?
It is no secret that when humans feel invested in they feel valued and when people feel valued, performance increases which means greater profit.
