Dr. Gill Macleod
CEO / Executive Director Of Primary Care, Roodlane Medical
Partner, Deloitte North West Europe
Gill and Kay have worked together over the last nine years and have developed different practical approaches to many aspects of workplace mental health and well-being.
Earlier this year Deloitte published an update to their 2017 research focused on mental health and employers. The report makes a positive case for employers investing in mental health, with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.
Together they will address the significant rise in mental-health-related ‘presenteeism’, where employees work when they are not at their most productive, with mental-health related absenteeism and staff turnover contributing to the costs overall.
Alongside this, changes to working practices are found to make maintaining mental health more challenging for some. For example, while increased use of technology can enhance working practices, having the ability to work outside of regular working hours can also make it hard to disconnect from an ‘always-on’ culture.
This presentation will deliver, strategies and practical steps that we can all use as employers and employees, to invest in our mental health and to help protect and manage ourselves both.
