Thriving at Work: a review of mental health and employers

In 2017 Prime Minister Teresa May asked Lord Dennis Stevenson and the former CEO of Mind, Paul Farmer, to create a report on mental health at work. Their findings showed that the UK is facing a much bigger mental health challenge than previously thought, and stressed the need for employers to do more for their staff’s wellbeing.

Why the need for meditation at work sessions?
Mental health is an issue many organisations cannot afford to ignore. It’s the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year as found by the Time to Change campaign

Every employer depends on having healthy and productive employees – valued and supported staff are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes for your business.

If you want to attract and retain committed employees, prioritising the mental health of your staff needs to be core business in your organisation.

The latest analysis report in 2020 by Deloitte, building on work conducted in the 2017 review reported poor mental health costs UK employers up to £45 billion a year.  Rising by 16% since 2016.

Therefore concluding that it pays employers to support their employees, with every £1 spent supporting employee’s mental health, employers receive £5 on their investment in reduced absenteeism and staff turnover.


Employees of many professions often work in stressful conditions. It is important for the mental and physical health of your team that they have coping mechanisms to mitigate their stress. Mindfulness and meditation are techniques that not only reduce stress, but also increase focus and productivity. Stress can affect every level of your employees’ health, from their emotional well-being to their physical vitality. A regular meditation practice can help you maintain focus, improve productivity, and increase retention. Meditation can be an easy, integral part of an overall workplace wellness program.
