New research from Breathe has revealed that 40% of employees are uncomfortable telling managers that they need time off to deal with mental health.
According to the ‘Sick Report 2019: the state of health and wellbeing in British SMEs’ which surveyed over 1,500 employees, 23% of employees admitted that they would rather have an unexplained absence than discuss mental health issued with their employer. And this is costing the UK economy £1.4billion annually.
