Jo featured in Reward-Strategy Magazine talking about sickness absence in 2022
Reward-Strategy Magazine's insightful piece commenting on the increase in sickness absence in 2022 was highly topical given the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics.
Featuring Dr Jo Burrell, the article highlighted the impact of wide ranging factors on people's mental health, not just workplace-based stressors. Jo's comments reflect the increase in fear and uncertainty that people face associated with insecurities in the job market, financial worries and global threats linked to climate change. These challenges contribute to feelings of stress and overwhelm, undermining confidence in the future, increasing vulnerability to stress and for some leading to more serious mental health problems and time off work.
