Partner Event from Business Disability Forum - Wellbeing Campaign Launch: Your Job Can Be Good For You



Thursday Jun 9, 2022


There are worrying signs that the nation’s mental health is getting worse (1), and that work is a significant factor. More than 1 in 3 UK employees are unhappy in their job (2), and a reported 36% experienced a mental health issue due to work in the past year, citing excessive pressure, workload, and long hours as the causes. 

If businesses want to retain and attract the best talent, they cannot ignore the ‘Great Resignation’ (3), and must make mental health and wellbeing a priority at work.

About Business in the Community’s work on health and wellbeing


Business in the Community defines “wellbeing” as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.


Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into a workplace culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving businesses and thriving communities.
