A recent survey conducted by Ryalto revealed that 78% of people said they need mental health and wellness support from their employers.
Those who took part in the survey feel as if they need more mental health and wellness support, in order to achieve their personal work goals in the next year.
115 people took part in the survey and 90 people who voted think it is vital that workplaces provide support, to ensure a perfect work/life balance. However, these findings have shown that employers need to find ways to support their staff sufficiently.
Jon Bennett, CEO of Ryalto said: “The survey results provide further evidence for what we are hearing every day
from the U.K. workforce and the network of leaders that we meet with frequently – that mental wellness support for workers should be at the top of every leader’s agenda.”
However, 5% of those who had taken part in the survey, had not thought about offering their employees mental health support.
Bennett also went on to say: “Offering help is not complicated or expensive. Simple self-serve surveys and diagnostics can help people understand what they are feeling and there is some great content available that can guide people and help them take the path to feeling better.”
Ryalto is one of the few technology providers which have been NHS approved.
