Supporting You And Your Staff To Transform And Excel With A Proven Return On Your Investment

Mental health related absence is the most common cause of long-term sickness absence in UK costing £77.5bn a year and presenteeism costs 3 times more than sick leave.

9 in 10 GPs report an increase in work related stress and anxiety and say it’s likely to continually increase.

More employees than ever before are seeking new employment and a change to better working conditions.  A study by Microsoft revealed that over 40% of employees were considering handing in their resignations, calling it ‘The Great Resignation’.

This is going to cost your workplace thousands of pounds and continually put strain on your resources!

Employers need employees that are able to get the job done – this is critical to the overall success of your business.  Employees want to work with an employer of choice and feel supported and valued.

At direction we inspire change and work with you to increase your employee retention, engagement and productivity. This benefits your employees and reduces costs for the business.

With our expertise we have designed our support around four key areas:

  • EAP (Counselling for staff)
  • Training
  • Coaching
  • Supervision and Mentoring

Our goal-focused services are tailored around your specific requirements and we have supported hundreds of businesses and employees across the UK.
