Well Workplaces Work Better

Achieving and maintaining positive workplace mental health and wellbeing is an essential component of a healthy, safe and productive workplace.

  • One in five New Zealanders will experience mental illness this year
  • Nearly 50% of the New Zealand population will experience some kind of mental health problem during their lifetime

Investing in a mentally healthy workplace makes good business sense.

A recent Harvard Business Review study found that happy employees have, on average: 31% higher productivity; their sales are 37% higher; and their creativity is three times higher. Conversely mentally unwell employees showed significantly higher levels of sick leave, injuries, workplace conflict and personal grievance.
