What steps to wellbeing is your organisation taking?

For every £1 spent by employers on mental health interventions they get £5 back in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover.

How can individuals, teams and organisations thrive beyond simply signposting for mental ill health? Is your current approach focused on treating symptoms, or is it strategic, preventative and positive?

Wellbeing strategies and approaches at work should support:

  • Psychological wellbeing
  • Physical wellbeing
  • Financial wellbeing

Bailey & French have developed practical programmes and tools use to help organisations take important steps to achieve wellbeing. And without wellbeing, you can’t get performance.

Why is wellbeing important?

Poor mental health costs UK employers up to £45 billion each year. This is a rise of 16% since 2016 – an extra £6 billion a year.
Deloitte, 2020

Bailey & French use the PERMA model, introduced by Martin Seligman in 2011. Through his research into flourishing and thriving the five core elements of psychological wellbeing, all equally important, can help people take steps towards wellbeing and work towards a life of fulfillment, happiness, and meaning. They are:

  • Positive Emotions
  • Engagement
  • Relationships
  • Meaning
  • Accomplishment

When people are in a positive state, they can find 12+ solutions to a given problem compared to two when in a state of anger or fear.
Fredrickson, 2008
