According to a study conducted by Legal & General, with the use of statistics from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), less than one-fifth - 17th per cent - of all companies have any sort of anxiety management system in place for their members of staff.
This suggests managers are not prioritising mental health issues within the workplace, even though government data displays the fact that stress is one of the primary causes of absence among employees.
Diane Buckley, managing director of Legal & General Group Income Protection, observed: "It is concerning that 83 per cent of employers have no provisions in place to deal with stress-related illnesses."
This comes after figures from the DWP found that 79 per cent of people went into work despite feeling ill at some stage over the last 12 months.
