Staff Well-being


Staff Well-being

In 2021, 82% of teachers described themselves as stressed, with 46% citing that pressures on their mental health have led to them considering leaving the profession. (Education Support Partnership, 2021).

While according to the NHS Confederation survey, 9 out of 10 of senior managers are concerned about the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the well-being of their staff and yet just 33% of NHS staff say their organisation takes positive action on health and well-being (NHS Staff Survey).

Equally concerning, a survey by Institute of Health and Social Care Management has revealed that 90% of social care workers don’t believe that they receive the recognition that they deserve.

Staff well-being is therefore of paramount importance and vital to the success of the education, healthcare and social care sectors in terms of developing the next generation of learners, giving patients the best clinical care and ensuring that all those benefiting from social care can live their best possible life. Ensuring that staff feel both recognised and appreciated for the work they do has a positive effect on the way they feel which directly impacts on their mental health and well-being.
