Addressing mental health in the workplace yields 500% return on productivity

The health and wellbeing industry is now worth $4.2 trillion, some 5.3% of global economic output. So you can be forgiven for getting confused by all the noise and hype. This website only contains simple, factual, helpful and actionable information.

2020 presents a set of unique challenges for the wellbeing of people in organisations across Australia.  The extraordinary circumstances over recent times of fires, drought, health threats and unrest has created a climate of anxiety and now more than ever, it is vital that we look after our mental wellbeing.

The Draft Productivity Commission Report into Mental Health (26 September, 2018) estimates the annual cost to the Australian economy of $180 billion.  BUT every dollar spent on supporting workers with mental health issues yields a 500% return on productivity through increased work output and reduced sick and other leave.
