Employers benefit from supporting mental health at work.
“Employers that have supported their employees with the pandemic, racial injustices, return-to-office planning, and/or mental health overall have better mental health and engagement outcomes. For example, workers who felt supported with their mental health overall were 26% less likely to report at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year. Respondents who felt supported by their employer also tended to be less likely to experience mental health symptoms, less likely to underperform and miss work, and more likely to feel comfortable talking about their mental health at work. In addition, they had higher job satisfaction and intentions to stay at their company. Lastly, they had more positive views of their company and its leaders, including trusting their company and being proud to work there. This reinforces the tie between workplace culture and its ability to support mental health at work when done intentionally.” — Harvard Business Review
“When we start on a journey of growth, we may discover that we are being inhibited and are not grounded or supported in our own Wellbeing. Wellbeing is no longer just a “nice to have”, Gallup research shows it’s a necessity for a productive and healthy team to focus on Wellbeing.

6 Reasons to make Wellbeing a Top Priority in Your Organization
1. Higher Performance Levels
When employees follow a routine of eating healthy and exercising regularly, they tend to be more productive, energized, and feel encouraged to be proactive with their work. Wellness routines also create space to think over tasks and decisions that need to be analyzed.
2. Improved Employee Morale
An effective well-being program makes an employee feel valued, since his efforts are recognized. This motivates them to deeply involve themselves into tasks, and contribute their full potential.
3. Low Employee Turnover
A well-planned wellness program not only attracts top talents, but they also retain them for long. It is one of the differentiating points that will motivate a talent to join your organization over another – even if they are offering a cushy paycheck.
4. Reduced Health Risk
Blending wellness activities into your employee’s routine does not only offer a much needed breather, but also restores the negative effect of unhealthy desk postures. It’s a given that healthier employees are less likely to take sick leaves, thus reducing absenteeism.
5. Attracts Top Talent
Think of your wellness program as a free PR for your organization. It reflects your company’s culture, tight bonds between employees, and brands your company as a rewarding place to work at.
6. Builds Employee Camaraderie
Wellness initiatives like attending yoga sessions together, joining an organization’s social club, or meeting for company sponsored luncheons resolves workplace conflicts, brings your people together outside office spaces, and encourages them to have conversations at a personal level.
