Internet Advertising Bureau earns award in Mind's Workplace Wellbeing Index

The Internet Advertising Bureau has earned a Silver award in Mind's 2017-18 Workplace Wellbeing Index.

The Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) has been recognised by the leading mental health charity mind for its ongoing commitment to promoting wellbeing in the workplace.

Mind's Workplace Wellbeing Index for 2017-18 has selected the IAB as one of the recipients of a Silver award, which is presented to employers that have made demonstrable efforts to promote staff mental health, with progress and impact achieved over time.

The index is an important benchmark of best policy and practice in this important area, celebrating the good work that leading organisations are doing to promote and support positive mental health, while also providing recommendations when there is room to improve.

Mind surveyed nearly 45,000 staff members working for the 74 employers participating in the Index, and found that 58 per cent said their mental health was good or very good, while 13 per cent said their mental health was poor or very poor.

Of those with mental health issues, 82 per cent cited work-related issues as contributory factors, which underlines the importance of offering a supportive working environment for all employees.
