Economic Value


Employment

The cost of workdays lost due to sick leave amounts to a total of £13.4bn or £537 per employee each year [13].

Stress and depression are the biggest cause of ill health in the workplace (76% and 57% respectively) [15].

Given that, on average, thirty percent (30%) of urban populations cannot read a local newspaper, it is not unreasonable to assume the same of the workplace in general.

Therefore, assuming Manage-Able™ programmes target 25% of working people; arguably those most vulnerable and absent from work, the programme may be seen as offering a return in excess of one hundred per cent (100%).
