The Problem: poor mental health management will lead to more sickness, longer absences and increased pressure on staff

Mental ill health is a major cause of employee absence. It disrupts work, reduces productivity and increases resource risks. Employers have need to improve mental health strategies to protect employees and avoid operational risks, but Employee Assistance Schemes aren’t enough. Forward-thinking employers want to address mental health, but often don’t know where to start.

The Solution: an evidence-based mental health strategy and action plan

Bamboo provides clear, expert advice for organisations interested in improving staff care and resilience. We assess HR policies, procedures and internal engagement, and we talk to employees to understand their experience of mental health at work. We research the impact of mental ill health on your organisation and, based on the evidence, provide a roadmap to improve employee wellbeing and operational resilience. This is what we call a mental health review. The aim of the review is to help your organisation identify and implement an effective and sustainable mental health strategy. All reviews are tailored to your needs.
