Mental Health Support

Woking Works has formed a partnership with Woking Mind to support managers and employees of SME's in Woking.  This will take the form of providing access to resources and activities offered by Woking Mind as well as an opportunity to have a consultation with a member of their workplace wellbeing team. We are delighted that Cllr. Liam Lyons, newly elected Mayor of Woking has chosen to support Woking Mind during his 2021-2022 Mayoral term.

Most adults spend a large proportion of their waking lives at work. Work can be highly beneficial to wellbeing but can also cause or contribute to poor mental health. All organisations, be they large and small, for-profit or not-for-profit can take steps to improve the wellbeing of their employees at work.

The case for investing in workplace well-being is all the stronger because the positive impact is not only on employees but also on employers.  Not only will employees be healthier, less stressed and more motivated but also organisations will have higher productivity, fewer absences, lower staff turnover and higher profits/performance.

An estimate of the cost of mental health related absence to UK Employers is approximately £7.9bn.  (Deloitte, 2017).  2018/19 figures from the UK Labour Force Survey showed that 602,000 people reported that they were experiencing work related stress, anxiety or depression. 

Woking Works is working with Woking Mind to raise awareness about their support and services.
