19 December 2019

Report by PWC in Australia

 

Hans-Horst Konkolewsky, Immediate Past Secretary General of the ISSA, the member of the International Organizing Committee of the Congress on Mental Health: Meeting the Needs of the XXI Century, kindly delivered the report by PWC in Australia that highlights the necessity of investments in mental health:

“Mental health conditions present substantial costs to organizations. However, through the successful implementation of an effective action to create a mentally healthy workplace, organizations, on average, can expect a positive return on investment (ROI) of 2.3. That is, for every dollar spent on successfully implementing an appropriate action, there is on average $2.30 in benefits to be gained by the organisation.  These benefits typically take the form of improved productivity, via reduced absenteeism and presenteeism (reduced productivity at work), and lower numbers of compensation claims.”
