Date: 7 Mar 2017

The IoD (Institute of Directors) has created a 'Mental Health Hub' that aims to help businesses promote good mental health within the workplace. The hub also provides information and advice for managers and workplace leaders that will help spot the signs of mental health problems and know how to help.

Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice." Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work.

Costs of Ill Health

In 2006 around 175 million working days were lost due to illness and it is estimated that the annual economic costs of sickness absence and worklessness is over £100 billion.  (Working for a healthier tomorrow, Department of Health, March 2008).
