Companies tout their physical health benefits and initiatives, like subsidized gym memberships, access to healthy lunches and snacks and on-site fitness classes. However, what about employees’ mental well-being?
Here are three ways to encourage emotional wellness in the workplace.
1. Lead By Example
As a manager, if you are always skipping lunch breaks to meet deadlines, your employees will follow suit. Instead, show them you believe a healthy work-life balance is important.
2. Empower Employees To Seek Resources
Incorporating a health empowerment strategy will encourage those who struggle with mental health issues to get help. Sometimes they just need a reminder of their options.
3. Create A Sense Of Belonging
Be sure all employees not only feel welcome but valued. They will be more motivated to come to the office every day and contribute their best work.
