Charity Mind has joined forces with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) - which now has more than 200,000 members following its formation in 1974 - to come up with some amendments to the FSB's existing Taking Care Of Business document in a bid to reduce mental health issues in workplaces across the country.
According to the FSB, conditions such as unmanageable stress and depression cost businesses across all sectors as much as £26 billion annually, but the organisation estimates that around a third of this figure could be saved if firms implemented several simple steps.
For instance, offering employees the opportunity to work flexibly and have a say in the planning of their tasks is recommended, as is introducing a supportive system where workers regularly get to talk one-on-one with their boss.
