20% Of Organisations Say Mental Illness Is The Main Cause of Long Term Absence

Payroll Service BirminghamThe Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development’s (CIPD) Wellbeing At Work Survey May 2018, reported that more than 20% of organisations said mental health issues were the primary cause of long-term absence from work.

Acas has launched a new framework to be used alongside their existing guidance, to help employers tackle this issue with more confidence. The goal of the framework is ‘Positive wellbeing and productive workplaces’.  The framework has three interlinking elements that need to work together, Employers, Managers and Employees.

For employers it outlines things like, reducing stigma and tackling the causes of workplace stress. For managers it focuses on things like planning work with people in mind and supporting work-life balance.  For employees it describes looking after their own wellbeing, engaging with line managers and taking notice of and supporting colleagues.

At Payroll Masters we take mental and physical health issues very seriously. Some of the work we do involves working with people with all kinds of disabilities both physical and mental.  We also believe that the service we provide to employers takes the stress and hassle of dealing with payroll issues away from them.

Payroll can be stressful, especially if you are not an expert. There are dual pressures of making sure your people get paid, but also the regulatory and tax side of things that you have to get right!
