Baines Explains: Mental health in the workplace

Mental ill health is responsible for 70m lost working days in the UK each year, at an estimated cost to businesses of £2.4bn.

Tom also looks at how to manage staff absence – and requests for flexible working – and how employers can create a culture where employees can talk openly about mental ill health without fear of stigma.
