Positive Effect

Would your organisation like to:

  • Increase productivity?
  • Improve efficiency?
  • Reduce absenteeism?
  • Enhance employee satisfaction in the workplace?

Welcome to Positive Effect!

What is Positive Effect?

We provide an holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing, working directly with business owners and managers to deliver practical, low or no cost solutions.

As the trading company of Compass, all profits from Positive Effect will be used by Compass to fund programmes to support the health and wellbeing of the wider community.

Why should we be concerned with the health and wellbeing of our employees?

Mental ill health doesn’t discriminate and can affect anyone at any stage in life. Employers are required to adopt a whole organisation approach to mental health and wellbeing that is embedded within the culture of the business, supported by policy and practice.

A recent Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development study has highlighted the impact that mental ill health can have on organisations. It found that:

  • 37% of sufferers are more likely to get into conflict with colleagues
  • 57% find it harder to juggle multiple tasks
  • 80% find it difficult to concentrate
  • 62% take longer to do tasks
  • 50% are potentially less patient with customers/clients

1 in 4 adults in the UK experience mental illness. Some of your employees could be struggling right now, but can you spot the signs? Do you know how you can support them? Does your organisation promote positive mental health at all times?

How can Positive Effect help me?

Through audit and online wellbeing surveys completed by the workforce population we help evidence and prioritise your organisation’s needs. These could be met through:

  • Training
  • Workshops
  • Awareness sessions
  • Changes in policy or procedure

Our approach is to offer pragmatic and proportionate services and tools that can make a big difference with simple, cost-effective changes that deliver positive results for business key performance indicators.
