Past Event | Embracing Mental Wellness in the Workplace: An Authentic and Practical Roadmap

In this event, we delved into the growing recognition of the symbiotic relationship between employee well-being and organizational success was discussed. Companies are increasingly acknowledging that a mentally healthy workforce is not only more productive but also more innovative and resilient in the face of challenges.

They provided practical insights into creating a supportive environment.


Key takeaways:

  • Addressing uncomfortable truths is the first step toward creating a mentally healthy workplace. Encourage open and honest communication
  • Launch stigma-busting campaigns to create awareness and understanding around mental health
  • Increasing accessibility to counselors: recognize the importance of mental health professionals in the workplace
  • Reassessing the culture around working hours: evaluate the organization's approach to working hours and foster a culture that values efficiency over mere presence
  • Encouraging courageous conversations: create spaces for courageous conversations about mental health. Training programs can empower employees and managers to navigate these discussions with empathy and understanding
  • Implementing exit surveys: these are not just about why someone is leaving; they can uncover valuable insights into workplace culture and potential mental health concerns. Include questions specifically related to mental well-being in exit surveys to gather data that can inform ongoing improvement efforts.
