Welcome to Mental health and employers: The case for investment – pandemic and beyond, the third in Deloitte’s series on employee mental health. This edition builds on two earlier editions and examines the 
impact of the pandemic has had on mental health in the workplace. Longer hours, job insecurities and fear of COVID-19 itself – all brought mental health issues into sharper focus during the pandemic. 
We now estimate that the overall annual cost of poor mental health to businesses in 2020-21 were greater than in 2019. Moreover, an updated analysis of return on investment (ROI) continues to support the case for 
employers to invest in the mental health of their employees. How we invest in the mental health of our employees will shape how successfully we emerge from the pandemic, and the business case for proactive action far outweighs the benefits of a reactive approach. 
We have found that more targeted interventions that understand and fit the specific needs of different groups and individuals bring better outcomes than reactive approaches. The impact of the pandemic on mental health has been felt by many people but has been felt more keenly by some than by others, depending on personal circumstances and background. 
Our report focuses on four of these groups: young people, key workers, people with caring responsibilities and ethnic minorities. Evidence shows that these groups have been more adversely affected than some others during the pandemic. Our research shows that it is important that employers understand the specific needs of the diverse groups within their employee populations and offer targeted support. 
Click on this text to edit itOver the past couple of years, many of us have adapted our ways of working. Flexible working arrangements have been shown to help employees manage stress, but the pandemic has also created new challenges. For many, the changing nature of work has put a greater strain on the mental health of employees. As we look ahead, it is clear that as employers, we will need to continue to adapt to the new realities brought on by COVID-19 and also adapt how we support our employees, in particular, with their mental health. Our research shows that many employees would like more support from their employer to improve their mental health. 
At Deloitte, we are designing our future of work to give our people the freedom to choose where, when and how they work with their teams and clients, to enable them to prioritize their wellbeing and mental health in 
the way that works for them. We know that the case for investment in employee mental health is not just a business imperative, but for many businesses, including Deloitte, it is also simply the right thing to do. We are 
being guided by our people, listening and learning what works best for them, as we continue to design our future of work with wellbeing in mind. I sincerely hope that this report encourages other organisations and 
leaders to do the same.
