The National Retail Association is proud to partner with our colleagues at the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and Beyond Blue to give our industry a heads up about mental health in the workplace.
From absences to lost productivity and compensations claims, the hidden cost of poor mental health in Australia’s workplaces has been valued at $10.9 billion dollars a year.
But a small investment could change all that. For every dollar spent on mental health, your business could see an ROI of up $2.30.
Over 2015-2016, we’ll be encouraging all our members and the wider industry to join us in developing a tailored mental health action plan for your business.
Whichever way you look at it, investing in workplace mental health is good business.
