When it comes to workplace wellbeing, you can’t afford to be behind the curve. Inadequate mental health provision can be catastrophic for individuals, and it harms an organisation’s productivity, too.


We’re increasingly aware of the impact our work life can have on our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Although companies will typically offer guidance on posture and time spent at a desk, mental health often lacks a similar level of attention.


That’s why it’s so vital for HR professionals to be aware of strategies, guidance and support for mental and emotional wellbeing as well as physical health.

Mental health conditions, ranging from anxiety to bipolar disorder, introduce a variety of challenges to the workplace. Although not all mental health conditions are caused by work, employers need to provide support to their employees, which is why a number of legal guidelines exist to help them create an accessible, welcoming workplace.


This Barbour Director’s Briefing is a short but comprehensive guide to workplace wellbeing. It covers risk assessments, your legal responsibilities, the signs and symptoms of stress and depression, what support is available and some key recommendations. The guidance covers a broad spectrum of mental health: from schizophrenia to anxiety, but it also includes physical ailments such as musculoskeletal disorders.
