Improve worker self-care
Even before the pandemic, many countries were recording record instances of work-related stress, anxiety and depression, with the WHO estimating this to have a $1 Trillion (USD) impact on productivity.
Increase Mental Health Awareness
With the amount of high quality, on-demand content readily available to workers (e.g. Netflix and YouTube), they can often be left wanting when it comes to corporate training content. This reduces engagement, thereby also reducing attainment of desired knowledge and skills.
Take a strengths-based approach
Research consistently demonstrates that the majority of employees are not engaged or actively disengaged. Disengagement is related to higher absenteeism rates, lower productivity, and increased likelihood of safety incidents.
Understand employee wellbeing and contributing factors
Many countries were recording record levels of work-related stress, depression and anxiety pre-pandemic. The impact of COVID-19 on mental health is well documented, with health and economic concerns adding another burden on already stressed employees who have restricted access to normal supports.
Assess Psychosocial Risks
Even before the pandemic, countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia were recording record levels of days lost due to poor mental health. In the last Labour Force Survey conducted by the UK HSE, 46% of all working days lost to non-fatal illnesses and injuries was due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety.
