Corporate Animal Therapy & Wellbeing Visits


According to a recent Deloitte Report, poor Mental Health costs UK businesses upto £56 billion per annum.

Efforts by employers to improve mental wellbeing not only benefit employees themselves but may also reduce employment costs such as recruitment costs and provide broader societal benefits.

Furthermore the 2022 Deloitte analysis revealed that employers that invest in mental health support of their workforce can make significant gains. The report found the case for employer investment was stronger than ever, with an average £5 return for every £1 spent on wellbeing support.. .

Having a little time away from the desk doing something calming and fun can leave employees relaxed and refreshed, ready to return to their work duties.
