Webinar: Practical Strategies for Managing and Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace
Working through the pandemic for the past two years has placed great stress on employees' mental health. Depression, anxiety, and stress are at all-time highs.
A recent survey reported on by Harvard Business Review found that 76% of employees in 2021 reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition, compared with 59% in 2019. And 50% of employees have left their jobs, voluntarily or involuntarily, for mental health reasons last year - a 16% increase since 2019.
With 84% of the respondents reporting that at least one workplace factor negatively affected their mental health, it is critical for employers to create a work environment that supports employees' mental health. At the same time, it's important to remain aware of and consider requirements of federal and state laws.
In this 60-minute webinar, Rachel Ullrich, discusses best practices for managing mental health issues in the workplace, how prioritizing mental health improves the work culture and employee engagement, and reasonable accommodations and other ADA, FMLA and state law issues.
