Wellbeing Facts


An average of 11.7 million working days are lost each year due to stress related absence, costing the British economy almost £6.5 billion in 2015/2016.*  And that's just the tip of the iceberg as it doesn't take into account the negative impact of stress on the day to day productivity of employees. Indeed, presenteeism is also on the rise, meaning employees come into work tired, disengaged, stressed, and unable to work. Work-related stress is particularly prevalent in medium and large businesses, and the most commonly cited sources of stress are workload pressures, including tight deadlines, too much responsibility and lack of managerial support.

Two thirds of employees say they can’t always stop working to take a lunch break (20 minutes or more), while almost 1 in 3 say they can’t take even a minute to themselves during the workday. About 1 in 3 eat lunch at their desk, which usually involves picking up emails or browsing the internet - not taking a break at all. This trend is fuelled by the notion that the most dedicated, effective workers are constantly available and on-task, and that taking a lunch break is counterproductive. But in reality, the productivity of employees who don’t take lunch breaks drops considerably in the afternoon.
