Within Council of Europe member States, this is to draw attention to the opportunity for better economic performance by raising standards of the psychological wellbeing of employees and of good leadership in management.

Such raised standards in business and industry would enhance productivity and output within national economies as they also would the quality of public services, including those of education, health and the police force.

To assist democracy and the quality of life, we encourage the Committee of Ministers to assess these potential benefits and to publish guidelines for deployment.
