Mental health is an essential part of our overall wellbeing, and this guide will explain how to improve wellbeing in the workplace.
With around one-third of our lives spent at work, it's a key factor in how we manage our overall wellbeing. It's normal for everyone to struggle now and again, but these ups and downs can take their toll. Life can throw us tough situations along the way, so having good wellbeing initiatives in the workplace can promote an environment that is preventive and supportive rather than reactive.
It can be tough to know how to approach mental health conversations. You don't have to be an expert, but as an employer, you should create an environment where your team is comfortable discussing issues and can be open about wellness in the workplace. Employers need to take a proactive approach to workplace wellbeing and provide support, resources and guidance, as well as introducing healthy wellbeing initiatives.
A positive approach to wellbeing makes your workplace a nicer place to be. Happier employees are more productive, less likely to leave, and happier overall. Employers who promote the support and treatment of mental health and wellbeing issues are the ones people will want to work for.
The guide is designed for employers who want to learn how to promote wellbeing in the workplace and take a positive approach to managing mental health for their employees and themselves.
