Worrying levels of mental illness and burnout are leading many organisations to offer a range of stress management and mental health training to their employees. 

But is this the most effective way for L&D to support employee wellbeing?

Might there be benefits from other kinds of training that are unrelated to the topic of wellbeing – vocational courses, apprenticeships and mentoring, for instance? 

In this TrainingZone survey – conducted in partnership with The Open University and The 5% Club – we uncovered three major findings about L&D's impact on employee wellbeing. 

From surveying 564 senior HR and L&D professionals across the UK, we found that employers investing in long-term skills training saw a positive impact on people's mental health, alongside a long list of other benefits too – including employee retention and engagement. Despite this, our survey also shows that L&D budgets are under threat across the next 12 months.

Written by leadership and culture specialist Blaire Palmer, this paper features expert insights and guidance from Open University academics, The 5% Club and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy on how to get the most out of your L&D investment today.
