Workplace Wellbeing Is Still Not A Cultural Priority

Koa Health’s new report titled “Wellbeing at Work” is highlighting the impact that the pandemic has had on the mental health of companies in the UK.

The social listening research conducted by Pulsar on behalf of Koa Health finds that online content about people’s declining mental wellbeing increased by 400% from February 2020 to May 2020.

The research also revealed that 56% of UK organizations saw an increase in demand for mental health services, leading HR managers to spend an average of 30% more of their time on this type of support for employees.

Despite the increased importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace, it is still not fully incorporated into business culture. In fact, 43% of companies stated that mental health was not a cultural priority.

“Supporting employees through the COVID-19 crisis is likely to prove the greatest challenge of many organisational leaders’ and HR managers’ careers,” said Dr. Oliver Harrison, CEO of Koa Health. “While our report found that many have risen to the challenge, it’s alarming that many organisations still do not see mental health as a cultural priority at their organisation, and that they plan to reduce investment in mental health support at such a critical time for UK employees as they consider returning to offices.”
