Businesses, academic institutions and organisations around the UK and the rest of the world are beginning to place greater emphasis on creating a better environment for those around them.

Hire Expert Mental Health Speakers For Events
A keynote speech on mental health can kick start a conversation, enabling those in attendance to input on strategies to improve the wider mental wellbeing of an entire team. Speeches, workshops, seminars, fireside chats and training can play a pivotal role in equipping staff, students and others to deal with items that might bring on issues, thus minimising the chance of mental health problems and maximising happiness in the workplace. Whatever format you choose when hosting an event with mental health speakers on stage, the benefits can be truly significant.
As a byproduct of an employee being happy and motivated in the workplace, better productivity and performance is proven to result. In a 2016 study by the Mental Health Foundation, it was estimated that investment into mental health workshops, seminars, questionnaires and support can cost around £80 per employee. In the same study, they estimated that a business with 500 employees would spend an initial £40,000 but gain a return of £347,722 in savings due to reduced presenteeism (lost productivity when an employee works whilst ill) and absenteeism (missing work due to ill health).
