Time to Talk Day

Date: 5 Jan 2016

The next Time to Talk Day will be on Thursday 4th February 2016.

Join us and let’s get the nation talking about mental health to help end the misconceptions around it. 

Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people every year, yet too often people are afraid to talk about their experiences because they fear it will affect their jobs or relationships. That’s not right and it’s why we need your help to break the silence and end the stigma.

Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult, order your Time to Talk Day pack for everything you need to take part on the day. 

Sickness Absence

Annually the average sickness absence is 3.5% (8 days per employee) and the average cost of absence per employee is estimated at £666.  If you employ 100 people sickness absence is costing your business £66,000 each year.  (CIPD Employee Absence, July 2008). 

Staff Engagement

Companies with higher levels of staff engagement have 13% lower staff turnover and less than half the UK average sickness absence.
