“Millions of employees are suffering in silence and feel unable to share their experiences at work. When they do reach out, many are met with an inadequate response,” said Louise Aston, Wellbeing Director at Business in the Community. “Our findings show that we need more openness, more training and information, and more support for employees and managers.
This is why we are asking employers to take three steps – Talk, Train and Take Action.”*
