The impact of mental health on the workplace

A graphic with multiple stats on the cost of public health on businesses and the economyCoping skills directly affect business results. Mental-health issues left unchecked can influence the frequency, intensity and duration of performance issues. Organizational success depends on what your employees think and then do—in that order.

According to Bill Wilkerson, co-founder and CEO of Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Addiction and Mental Health, stress and mental health issues have exploded in the workplace. These issues are costing Canadian businesses an estimated $33 billion a year in lost productivity and staff turnover. Research indicates that coping skills are the lead indicator for predicting employee engagement and health.
