One in four employees in the UK will be affected by mental health issues over the course of their professional life, often with long-lasting impact on their health and the organisation’s stability and performance. It is clear that recognising and tackling mental health challenges in the workplace benefits both employees and employers. We discuss how employers can take the initiative in addressing mental health issues, and how to create better and healthier workplaces.

Flexible hours and agile workspaces are the latest in a series of policies to empower staff, increase productivity, and foster diversity. Yet, these new ways of working may also lead to increased pressure, isolation, and difficulties to switch off.  We examine how organisations can offer flexible and agile work environments that promote diversity without compromising on mental health.
