Yoga in the workplace can greatly assist with overall employee mental, emotional and physcal wellbeing. Some scary facts to consider...
According to the Labour Force Survey (LFS) in 2019/20 there were an estimated 828,000 workers affected by work-related stress, depression or anxiety in the UK. This represents 2,440 per 100,000 workers and results in an estimated 17.9 million working days lost.
Red Magazine recently reported that depression and anxiety are in the top four most common reasons for absence from work which equated to 12.7% of the total of sick days in the UK. Red Magazine believes that mental health problems plagues at least one in every six employees.
According to Unison, 12 million working days are lost due to back pain.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that 2.6 million working days were lost in 2017/18 due to work-related Upper Limb Disorders – with an average of 14 days lost for each case. This includes conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI).
