More than a third of UK employers say their mental health support has improved since the onset of the pandemic, according to research from Acas.
The Acas commissioned YouGov poll of more than 2,000 senior decision makers at UK organisations found 36% of those questioned believed mental health support had improved at their business.
While half (50%) reported that it was unchanged and 6% said they did not know, nearly 1 in 10 (9%) said it had worsened.
Acas chief executive Susan Clews said: “The pandemic has been a challenging period for everyone and it’s great to see that over a third of bosses have managed to improve their organisation’s mental health support for their staff.
“However, nearly 1 in 10 employers have seen this support deteriorate so it is important for businesses to invest in the wellbeing of their workers as they open up again.
“Acas has good advice and training on how to support and manage mental health and wellbeing at work.”
