Drawing from the results of this research, from the perspective of employers, the majority of the interventions generate sufficient benefits to outweigh the costs. This is also reflected in the workplace case studies, whereby all the companies interviewed stated that employing mental health programmes resulted in significant positive impacts on employee wellbeing, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity. However, in order to encourage companies to implement workplace mental health promotion and mental disorder prevention programmes, mechanisms for shared funding and creation of incentives may need to be implemented. It should also be mentioned that these programmes are likely to be contextually dependent – not only on a positive engagement between employers and employees – but also in terms of the wider societal view of mental health. These contextual factors mean that the effectiveness of the programmes derived from the academic literature may not be replicated when programmes are implemented as mainstreamed EU initiatives.
