Digital Habits

The cost of poor employee mental health has increased 25% and our digital habits are part of the solution

 

The cost to the UK economy of poor employee mental health has increased by 25% during the pandemic since 2019, the recent Deloitte UK 2022 Mental Health Report shows.

 

In fact, we’re seeing some staggering statistics from a survey of 3,599 UK employees:

 

  • Poor mental health now costs UK employers up to £56 billion a year (due to higher staff turnover)

  • 28% or employees have either left in 2021 or are planning to leave their jobs in 2022

  • 61% are citing poor mental health as the reason they are leaving

 

Changing our digital habits can make the world of difference

 

At a time when organisations strive for more diverse representation, the unintended negative impacts of digital work are an important part of this conversation. With this in mind, we have some useful tips for leaders to consider:

 

  • Plan a conversation with your team to understand how their personal digital habits and how your team’s digital culture is impacting them

  • Consider providing guidelines to support a healthy team culture

  • Invest in training at three levels- individual digital habits, team digital norms and organisational digital culture
