Businesses recognise that they need to measure more than just financials if they are to be successful. Many organisations have looked to integrated reporting as a means of doing so, but it can be difficult to get started.
Awareness of mental health and how it can affect the workplace has come on in leaps and bounds in the past decade. Yet, domestic abuse and its impacts in work is still in the foothills, perhaps the last workplace taboo. 
We know that business needs young people with essential skills, such as leadership, teamwork, creativity, problem solving, and digital skills, including a knowledge of how technology can help with a range of job tasks and roles, and the ability to use data to learn and improve.  
Employers should do everything they can to support the mental health of their employees. Huge strides have been made, both in awareness and action, and employers are increasingly taking an active role in supporting good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
