Mente is dedicated to helping employers fulfil their duty of care and protecting the mental health of their workforce.
Employers can benefit on many levels by focussing on their internal approach to mental health and drawing on ever-increasing levels of external expertise and resources.
Businesses must assess mental health risk factors in a similar way to how physical health and safety hazards would be evaluated. By understanding the risks, employers can ensure they are pre-emptive in their approach to the management of stress.
Those that fail to take the matter seriously are going to be at a competitive disadvantage and exposed to significant operational costs caused by sickness, leavers and lost production as well as the increasing rise and risk of tribunal claims.
