Forty hours. That’s the number of hours worked per week, on average, across the globe. That may not be too surprising but, when we break it down, that’s 24% of every week – almost a quarter of our time.
It’s only right and fair then, if people spend such a large proportion of their time on work, that their environment fosters a positive and inclusive culture and provides a space for them to flourish.
Using insight gathered from over 7,000 corporate employees across 16 countries and territories, our new Mind Health Report 2023 explores what it takes to build a workplace that’s fit for the future and sustainable for decades to come. Ultimately, a workplace that makes mind health a priority and enables people to bring their best selves to work.
To help employers on this journey, we’ve focused on five key areas. Areas we believe, and that our findings demonstrate, are pivotal to employee wellbeing, productivity and retention:
- Inclusivity and diversity
- Gender equity
- Destigmatising mental illness
- Flexible working
- Supportive managers
And if we think again about those 40 working hours – or the 24% – employers are far more likely and are far better placed than most in an individual’s life to make a significant difference to their mind health. So, let’s put that time to good use and get going.
