Business in the Community (BITC) has launched a new report, What If Your Job Was Good For You? The report identifies actions employers can take to transform wellbeing at work. The report sets out how business leaders can create an environment in which employees feel supported to do their best work. It also outlines how to achieve good jobs for all, that drive sustainable positive mental health outcomes.
The What If Your Job Was Good for You? report was delivered in partnership with the BITC Wellbeing Leadership Team and Affinity Health at Work. The project was supported by Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) - the professional body for HR and people development.
Business in the Community (BITC) is one of the largest and longest established business-led membership organisation dedicated to responsible business. The organisation were founded by Prince Charles 40 years ago.
The Pandemic has resulted in rising levels of mental ill-health - a trend that is likely to be long lasting, particularly among younger and more disadvantaged people. The report notes that encouragingly, there has been progress in the way mental health has been prioritised across society. More organisations then ever are committed to protecting and promoting the health of their employees. The report notes that, "Well being needs to be permeated across every aspect of business."
