Costs of Poor staff Wellbeing 

The costs of poor staff wellbeing mean that you are not just morally right to address it, but extensive research demonstrates it is also a results and financial imperative, and particularly in the current environment.

Research from Birbeck, University of London, ‘Staff Wellbeing is the Key to School Success’; Dame Carol Black’s report ‘Working for a Healthier tomorrow’; and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills findings on ‘Worker Wellbeing and Workplace performance’ are just three of the many reports that show substantial benefits from a focus on staff wellbeing, including a significant improvement in financial performance.

The above costs will run into tens of thousands of pounds for most schools annually.

Investing in and actions that directly address these challenges, delivers a big financial return. The evidence also suggests focusing on staff wellbeing has a statistically significant impact on exam results and can be easier to influence than other strategies schools may pursue to improve performance.
