Checking In: Understanding and Prioritizing Mental Wellness in the Workplace

In this episode we are talking all about stress, wellness and mental health in the workplace. Find out how safety directors, executives and HR can help to ensure that employees feel heard and cared for.

On this Safety Speak episode of the podcast, we will discuss the importance of mental health. As some of you may know, May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we want to dive into why maintaining a good state of mind is so important in the workplace.

First, we’ll discuss the mental health crisis in general and why the pandemic has contributed to the decline in wellness. We have statistics on how COVID-19 made things worse. Then, we will discuss how safety directors, executives and HR can work on expanding access to mental health and make employees feel more cared for.
