Employers, their stakeholders and regulators are placing greater focus on the link between employee mental health and wellbeing, and business profitability and sustainability. Employee mental health and wellbeing is therefore becoming a strategic business priority and a core part of responsible business. But it is not clear how it fits into an Environment, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) strategy.
This paper by the MindForward Alliance explores the key component parts of wellbeing, and their associated operational initiatives. Their ambition is to provide an evidence-based approach for businesses to build and measure wellbeing capital.
This in turn can become a critical part of the non-financial assessment of a sustainable and resilient business, informing ESG reporting.
