IOD Policy Report

What is this report?

In this paper, based on surveys of IoD members and citing OECD statistics that suggest poor mental health costs the UK some 5 per cent of GDP, the IoD argues that mental health is unarguably a business issue on a par with physical health and safety, and that increasing awareness of mental health across the business landscape could play a key role in addressing Britain’s “productivity puzzle”. The report follows the Prime Minister’s announcement of an independent review into mental health in the workplace, to be led by Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, and Lord Dennis Stevenson.
