CANTAB BrainHealth is a fast, accurate and easy-to-use online digital health assessment tool to measure and monitor mental wellbeing and cognitive performance in the workplace, enabling employees and businesses to thrive.
Employee mental health and wellbeing are key to workplace performance. With increasing levels of anxiety, stress and depression, employers are losing billions due to staff being less productive, less effective, or off sick1.
The resulting costs are huge. Issues affecting mental health and wellbeing amount to an average cost of $1,600 for every employee, not just those who are ill2.
To improve workplace performance and health, government reports recommend employers routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing.
Assessing mental wellbeing in the workplace with CANTAB BrainHealth enables employers to:
- Reduce business risks, the costs of absenteeism and productivity loss
- Support improved job performance in the workplace
- Track progress and provide timely intervention when needed
