CIPD Absence Management Survey featured in Summer newsletter resources
In our Summer 2017 newsletter we featured the results of 2 surveys:
Although absence is at its lowest level for 7 years, nearly a third of respondents report that stress-related absence in their organisation has increased in the past year. Stress being the most common cause of long-term absence and the second most common cause of short-term absence (following minor illnesses).
One of the 4 subject areas commissioned by Public Health England for the NatCen’s British Social Attitudes Survey in 2015 was mental wellbeing. The 40 questions asked covered 2 main themes; people’s knowledge and awareness around mental wellbeing, and the stigma associated with mental health problems. The attitudes and perceptions of prejudice in the workplace (pages 12-15) make interesting reading.
