About Us

In Equilibrium has been designing and delivering training solutions for organisations since 1998.  We specialise in practical, evidence-based training for managers and employees in areas that have a positive influence on wellbeing.  These include stress management, resilience, mental health, equality, diversity and dignity at work.

Our in-house courses are delivered in person throughout the UK or live online at home and worldwide by experienced trainers who are subject experts within their field.  They deliver their training with enthusiasm and sensitivity.  This is summed up in our mission statement:

“To provide training and consultancy services
to enhance resilience,
health and wellbeing in the workplace
in the most professional, efficient and cost-effective way.”

The CIPD has reported that stress and mental ill-health are cited among the top 3 causes of long-term absence (absence of 4 weeks or more).  However, to get the full picture, it is now recognised that the overall cost to employers of poor mental health is the combined costs of absenteeism, presenteeism, and employee turnover. According to Deloitte's Mental Health and Employers - The Case for Investment report, "Overall, presenteeism is the largest contributor to employers' costs of mental health ... We estimate that the cost of mental health-related presenteeism to employers is £24-28 billion in 2021 – roughly 4 to 4.5 times the cost of mental health-related absenteeism."

However, the good news for employers is that in terms of financial return Deloitte's financial analysis indicates, "Measures by employers to improve the mental health of their employees will yield a return on average of £5 for every £1 spent".

With it being clear that employee wellbeing is an area that no employer can afford to ignore, we offer a range of face-to-face and virtual training solutions.  Options include full-day training workshops, half-day awareness sessions, bitesize seminars, corporate coaching and consultancy services.  Our website also provides a wide range of free resources about our specialist subject areas.  We encourage you to visit our regularly updated blog and resources section.

We have earned a reputation for providing high-quality training and consultancy, which represents excellent value for money.  We are proud of the high level of repeat business we achieve and have the flexibility and resources to deliver our services to any organisation, irrespective of size or location.  But please don’t just take our word for it, view some of our client testimonials.

If you are considering how sickness absence, presenteeism or employee turnover in your organisation could be reduced; would like to increase staff awareness; or are, perhaps, looking to prepare your managers or employees for an upcoming change or re-organisation; contact us or sign up for our weekly updates or quarterly newsletter and start the journey to minimising the risk of stress and enhancing the wellbeing of your workforce.
