The business case for developing wellbeing at site level is clear and includes benefits such as better performing staff, fewer sick days taken and a lower staff turnover. Many companies can demonstrate the link between improved wellbeing, reduced costs and better financial performance. Poor mental health alone is estimated to cost the UK economy between £70 and £100 billion a year.
The new CIRIA guidance focuses on the component areas of mind, culture, body and physical environment to identify how to improve performance in them. The guide also includes a baseline tool that can be used to plan actions and track performance and a series of awareness raising slides to help communicate the strategy to the target audiences. Taken together these elements of the guide will enable construction companies or sites to develop a comprehensive wellbeing strategy and improve their performance.
This event will discuss the issues raised in C782D, the key concepts and content.
