Esther Schwald, Co-Founder and Director
Hi again, welcome to our short video bytes on hot topics of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
In our work across markets, industry and regions we consistently see an increasing recognition from Directors, Executives and operational management of the importance of effectively addressing mental health in the workplace.
However, despite this increase in attention, a significant gap in the workplace mental health awareness component of organisation’s health, safety and wellbeing programs continues to exist across businesses.
This is due in no small part to the global business cycle at the moment resulting in significant P&L pressure and typically very tight budgets.
Unfortunately, this is at a time when many employees are reporting that they are more stressed and distressed than ever.
Leaders who want to leave a positive legacy must find effective and appropriately priced approaches to workplace mental health awareness. Our experience tells us that this is absolutely possible! Such approaches can include eLearning courses, online resources such as corporate mental health digital toolkits, a mental health management officer, and use of health and safety policy to achieve sustained and low cost mental health options.
