GET WELL: STRUGGLING IN WORK

Providing clinical assessment and assistance for employees suffering with poor mental health wellness.

In the era of increased pressure in the workplace, often due to the market led economy where competition and technology rule, people are feeling the strain more and more, across all levels of the corporate structure.

As recently reported by the latest ‘Britain’s Healthiest Workplace’ survey, 73 per cent of employees surveyed have at least one form of work-related stress, 41 per cent have two or more, and 20 per cent have three or more (The FT, October 2017)

It is apparent that we have an emerging crisis on our hands with mental health in UK business and that CEOs and HR people alike are seeking solutions to help their employees feel better and perform well.

Here at Cardinal Corporate we provide company mental health and wellbeing solutions across the spectrum, from prevention programmes through to outpatient and residential care for those people who may benefit from immersive therapy at our tranquil clinic.

Our resilience programme is designed and led by expert practitioners with the unique workplace in mind. This prevention programme is evidenced as increasing mental wellbeing and preventing pressure becoming depression and anxiety.

Over two-fifths of organisations have reported an increase in mental health problems in the last 12 months…there is growing evidence that it is in employers’ best interest to promote and support good mental health in their workforce. (CIPD September 2017)…

Causes of Struggling in Work

Workplace Stress

Workplace stress, unmanaged, can rapidly become an anxiety disorder or depression. This is when people at work may start to take sick days or become unproductive when they attend.

HR can be taught by one of our experts to spot signs of early un-wellness in people for earliest intervention and therefore the most rapid recovery.

Assistance in managing the signs of poor mental health wellness

Absenteesim, anxiety and depression

A major contributor to the increased levels of absence in the UK is the rise in mental health issues, which have increased by 71.9% since 2011 (Personnel today, March 2017)

We read everywhere about the increase in sickness days, and the huge contribution from mental health to this; “Anxiety and depression among UK workers up nearly a third in four years” (Independent, Oct 2017).

The extra pressures at work, deriving from new technologies, globalism, increased competition and a lean culture play a big part. In turn, we as employees seek to become more resilient to these pressures and demands in the workplace or we can become unwell.

Research now shows us that resilience is recognised as the key tool to protect us against stress related mental illness,
“resilience has a most protective effect against depression, absence and poor productivity when job strain is high” (Shatte A et al, 2016)

Making resilience a vital aspect of training for the workplace in 2017.
