Today, every employer knows how important employee mental health is. Poor mental health, including stress, anxiety and burnout, impacts the quality of daily life for millions of Americans and their ability to enjoy productive work lives. According to a recent study by the American Psychological Association, “burnout and stress are at an all time high across professions” and 79% of adult American workers surveyed reported experiencing recent work-related stress.
Poor mental health can be a detriment to an employee’s work-life in a number of ways, including:
However, although the negative consequences of stress, anxiety and burnout have been greatly publicized, many companies are still struggling to support their workforce. So, how can you support your employees with their mental health as an employer?
As an employer, one of the best things that you can do is provide valuable resources for your employees. Often, work-related mental health stress or anxiety comes down to a lack of support and guidance. By offering the right resources, you can ensure that your staff has access to everything they need if they’re struggling with their mental health and can proactively help to keep burnout at bay.
These resources can come in a range of different forms, including:
Creating an accepting and open environment will encourage your employees to communicate their needs and to utilize resources when they are needed. Investing in your team now will make it easier for you as an employer to ensure your team is happy and satisfied in the workplace today and in the future.
