“I love this project. It has become one of the most gratifying parts of my job.” Gill Dix, Tesco Community Champion, Hook

The need

  • Presenteeism – when employees come to work but are ill, or not fully engaged, and therefore less productive – costs UK business over £15 billion each year nearly twice the cost of sickness absence. (Business in the Community)
  • Increasing spending on employee engagement by 10 per cent would boost profits by £1,500 per employee per year (The Work Foundation)
  • In 2011/12, out of 1,073,000 cases of work related illness, 428,000 were cases of stress (Health and Safety Executive). Research shows that reading can reduce stress levels by 67% (Mindlab International)
