Looking to learn more about how employers can better support the emotional wellbeing of their employees?

Today, our understanding of wellbeing is more multidimensional than ever. Alongside physical, financial, and social wellbeing – emotional wellbeing remains a core pillar to ensuring an individual can flourish.

Despite this growing understanding – and increasing levels of mental health awareness – the prevalence of mental illness in Asia Pacific and in Singapore is on the rise. 1 in 7 people in Singapore have experienced a mood, anxiety, or alcohol use disorder in their lifetime. And perhaps more harrowing, over three-quarters of those who experienced a mental health issue did not seek professional help.

Additionally, research has found that the city’s workforce experiences higher levels of stress and lower levels of emotional wellbeing compared to the general population.

Employers today have a key opportunity to both help their people thrive and provide relevant support when it may be needed. But while the positive impact of employee wellbeing on business is becoming clearer, challenges still exist such as knowing where to start, securing the resources to bring a programme to life, and effectively engaging employees.
