star this property answer text <p><em>Thriving at Work; The Stevenson/Farmer Review of mental health and employers</em>, published in October 2017, sets out a compelling business case for employers to support their staff’s mental health. In the review, an independent study on the cost to employers of poor employee mental health commissioned from Deloitte found that:</p><ul><li>There is a large annual cost to employers of between £33 billion and £42 billion (with over half of the cost coming from presenteeism – when individuals are less productive due to poor mental health in work) with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.</li><li>The cost of poor mental health to Government is between £24 billion and £27 billion. This includes costs in providing benefits, falls in tax revenue and costs to the NHS.</li><li>The cost of poor mental health to the economy as a whole is more than both of those together from lost output, at between £74 billion and £99 billion per year.</li></ul><p>The Government’s full response to the review is included in <em>Improving Lives: The Future of Work Health and Disability</em> where we set out a broad ranging strategy to further support disabled people and people with health conditions – including mental health conditions - to enter and thrive in work.</p><p> </p>

The Competition and Market Authority has led the Open Banking initiative, bringing more competition and innovation to financial services. The FCA has also established the Innovation Hub and Regulatory Sandbox to support Fintech, both of which are held up as global examples of best practice.

star this property answer text <p>The government does not forecast either UK GDP or GDP per capita. The independent OBR in the March 2015 Economic and Fiscal Outlook (EFO) used the central ONS migration population projection. The ONS central migration projection is for net migration of 165,000 a year in 2018/19 and 2019/20. In the March 2015 EFO the OBR forecast that UK GDP per capita for those aged 16 and over will increase by 9.2% total between 2014 and 2019.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In order to inform policy making, the government reviews and notes the wider evidence on the economic and productivity impacts of immigration on an ongoing basis. This evidence base includes the wider academic literature, and a range of reports commissioned or produced by the government looking at specific impacts, for example those produced by the independent Migration Advisory Committee. In addition, policies that influence migration are assessed using the government's impact assessment process which models the economic impact of the policy change using assumptions based on a range of evidence and the academic literature. Home Office Impact Assessments are published on gov.uk.</p><p> </p>
