BiTC Mental Health at Work Survey 2018
To: All Branches
The Health, Safety & Environment Department has been belatedly informed that Business in the Community (BiTC) has launched its Mental Health at Work 2018 survey and has requested our support.
Now in its third year, the Mental Health at Work survey is once again looking to find out how employers are supporting their people’s mental health to help develop recommendations for businesses.
It’s widely accepted that mental ill health is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society. Research shows that one in six workers experience stress, depression or anxiety at any one time meaning that the workplace is a key area to manage and tackle mental ill health.
BiTC’s research is therefore a key part of tracking progress around workplace mental health and providing the insights businesses need to improve their approaches.
BiTC are calling on anyone in the UK who is employed or self-employed and over the age of 16 to take part in the survey, which closes for submissions on the 27th of July.
As the biggest survey of its kind, the research is also supported by national partners including Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, Mind, Mental Health at Work, CIPD, ILM and The Work Foundation.

The aim of this important survey is to help end the silence around mental health.
The research is managed independently by ‘YouGov’ on behalf of Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network. Business in the Community’s members work together to tackle a wide range of issues that are essential to building a fairer society and a more sustainable future.
All work is carried out in accordance with the Market Research Society Code of Conduct and in compliance with UK data protection legislation.
All responses will be kept strictly confidential.
The survey is easy to complete and will take around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Please encourage as many members to complete it as possible in the time available.
The survey will close on Friday 27th July.
BiTC have stated that contributors’ views make a difference.
