The pandemic has negatively impacted the mental health of nearly 8 in 10 members of the global workforce.1 With stress and anxiety on the rise, employees are also at risk of sleep problems, poor nutritional habits, increased alcohol consumption or substance use, and worsening chronic conditions.
For employers, this is a recipe for disaster. Poor mental health significantly impacts the ability of employees to thrive at work and can lead to decreased engagement, increased presenteeism, workplace accidents, a decrease in net earnings, and burnout.
While the topic of mental health is discussed more frequently than in years past, the stigma still exists. Are you creating a safe and inclusive workplace environment that allows employees to prioritize their mental wellbeing?
Watch this webinar replay to hear from Mandie Conforti, LCSW, Senior Director of Employer and EAP Strategy at Spring Health, and Paige Lapen, MPH, Director of Product Marketing at Virgin Pulse, as they discuss empathetic leadership, preventing burnout, and reducing employee stress and anxiety.
