Studies prove it, and employers know it: Healthy employees are more productive employees. But when it comes to employee well-being, physical health—healthy weight, in-range biometrics and low risk of disease—is only part of the equation. Mental health—an employee’s ability to manage stress, regulate emotions and use positive coping mechanisms—matters too, in a capital B-I-G way.
Resilient, mentally healthy employees are less likely to burn out, form unhealthy habits that lead to chronic disease development or use harmful behaviors to cope with life’s curveballs. And for employers, that can mean fewer sick days taken, less turnover, and a reduction in claims and prescription drug costs.
In this session, employers will learn how to improve employee mental health and foster resilience so that they can create a more productive workforce.
