SMALL BUSINESS REPORTS
Proactive approach to mental health challenging for small business, says fresh data
More than two thirds (67%) of small businesses have not discussed mental health days, according to fresh data from MYOB.
The finding, from a survey conducted with 757 Australian small business operators, is compounded by the fact that just half (52%) of respondents said they feel able to address mental health issues affecting their staff.
The number of businesses who had not talked about mental health days was particularly high for those with a small number of staff, with 72% of businesses with two to four employees saying they had not had the discussion.
