Mental Health & Performance

Good Mental Health = Better Performance

The performance of you, your management team and your employees is directly influenced by mental wellbeing. It stands to reason that if either you or any of your key staff members are not in good a place mentally, then performance must inevitably suffer. Poor Mental Health also affects those around the employee that is suffering as well.

Why is this fact overlooked…

Just recently there has been an upsurge in the media about mental health, in the public at large, and in the workplace. Sadly, the effect of mental illness on businesses has been overlooked, and effectively pushed under the carpet.

Firstly, mental health issues are invisible to most people, so they don’t even notice the signs that a colleague is suffering in some way and secondly when the signs are noticed it is largely misunderstood what is wrong with them.

Businesses spend money in the wrong places…

Many organisations and businesses spend significant amounts of money on cutting edge development programmes, only to discover that their people’s behaviour doesn’t change, and if it does then the changes don’t last. Many change programmes simply don’t produce the results that were required.

Workers still struggle…

Despite training and development programmes, ever increasing numbers of workers are reported to be struggling with some form of mental health issue such as stress or anxiety than ever before. At the recent World Economic Forum mental health and wellbeing were high on the agenda.

According to the WEF mental health illnesses may cost in excess of $16 trillion in lost performance and output over the next two decades.

All is not lost…

It’s not all gloom and doom. We are in one of the most exciting and progressive eras ever. As a society, we are more connected than ever and there is a growing interest in Human psychology and what it means to have good mental wellbeing.

A shift in our consciousness is taking place and people worldwide are asking important questions about what really matters.

Businesses, organisations, and people, in general, are asking what the true definition of success and happiness is.

Invest in mental wellbeing…

Businesses that invest in their employee’s mental health and wellbeing will be the ones that thrive, this culture is growing rapidly in many organisations.

It’s not rocket science, a worker with a sound mental mindset works more efficiently, is happier, more confident, gets on better with other employees and has a better attendance record.

What else could you ask from your employees?

After all, you wouldn’t expect them to work well with a broken arm, would you?

So why would you expect them to work well with a mental wellbeing issue?
