Poor mental health is a cost to individuals, the community and the economy. The evidence shows that workplaces that invest in staff mental health have increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and more engaged staff.

This report focuses on the interventions and investments that businesses can make to improve productivity through wellbeing.

CEDA's aim in producing this report is to shift the conversation about mental health in the workplace to focus on the foundational elements of a mentally healthy workplace, including:

  • good job design
  • a supportive organisational and leadership culture
  • strong management capability.

This is an area in which government, business and community all have an interest in pursuing better outcomes.
