695-Mental Health Support That Workers Want
Episode Title: Mental Health Support That Workers Want
When it comes to improving mental health in the workplace, it’s crucial to offer benefits that serve everyone. Listen in for why this matters, next on The Perna Syndicate.
Ep 695 show:
Hello and welcome to a new day on The Perna Syndicate! The challenge for employers is clear: if you want to gain an edge in the war for talent, finding ways to meet the mental health needs of your employees is critical.
Offering benefits that reach the range of employees, regardless of where they are in their lives and careers, is now essential.
Young people have shown more interest in employers who support their mental health. But to make these investments pay off, companies must think beyond serving just young people. Everyone inside the organization should benefit from the programs that are implemented.
Of course, creating these wellbeing programs should be more than just checking off a box. Employers should be building these strategic offerings with input from everyone, based what their people want and need.
That also means embracing a mindset shift. We can’t think of these programs simply as expensive changes. We should see them as essential investments that will return far more value to the organization than they cost.
While it might seem simplistic, the truth is that all of us, at our core, want to be seen, heard, and valued at work. That’s the thrust of the mental health support that employees want—and it’s what being human is all about.
That’s all for this week! Thank you for tuning in and making The Perna Syndicate a part of your day. If you have a minute, I invite you to check out my new website at MarkCPerna.com. We’ll see you next week for more on The Perna Syndicate!
