Join us for a discussion on building mental health resilience in the workplace through self-care tactics, organizational support, and more.
About the Webinar
COVID-19, racial injustice, war in Ukraine, transitioning back to in-office work… The last two years have been full of change, sorrow, and uncertainty. It’s no surprise that mental health issues have become increasingly common as people face ongoing challenges. In fact, a recent report from Indeed found that 52% of all workers feel burned out, with even higher numbers for those in Human Resources, in frontline positions, and in leadership.
Although 86% of employers say improving mental health and reducing stress and burnout are priorities, only 26% have adopted a wellbeing strategy, according to SHRM.
As individuals and organizations, we can take steps to improve mental health and wellness leading to greater agility, productivity, collaboration, and innovation. Join us for a discussion on building mental health resilience in the workplace.
In this one-hour webinar, we will cover:
- Self-care tactics to help prevent burnout
- Individual methods to build resilience
- How organizations can support employees’ mental wellness
- What the future of work means for workplace wellness
