How Mental Wellness affects Mental Performance

The mental health and wellbeing of employees plays a crucial role in their ability to contribute meaningfully in their personal and professional lives.  When mental wellbeing of employees begins to suffer, it has a direct impact on employers and businesses through a drop off in productivity and morale. The fallout is significant. 

Employees dealing with stress at work may find they’re unable to perform at their best and it can affect other areas of their life, including their sleep and relationships.

According to the World Health Organisation, depression and anxiety costs the global economy an estimated US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity.   WHO also found that workplaces that promote mental health and support those with mental health disorders are more likely to increase productivity, decrease absenteeism and increase retention.

How to support employee mental wellness:

 

  1. Show that you support mental health
    • Provide as much flexibility as you can into your employees’ schedules.
    • Consider offering access to apps that help with stress reduction, sleep and physical activity.
    • Consider offering mindfulness training.
    • Encourage employees to take a break and use their holiday time or take mental health days.
    • Organise social events so employees can build connections with each other. 
  2. Give access to mental health resources
    • Offer workshops for employees to learn about mental health and resilience.
  3. Understand how mental health can affect employees
    • Have managers and leaders take mandatory mental health training to help them be more aware of their direct reports’ wellbeing.
    • Have managers be aware of the signs of emotional distress.

Taking care of your employees’ mental health will create a happier team (who actually stick around) and ensure your business operates to its fullest potential.
