We all have different life experiences. Even within a thriving organisation, some people may experience anxiety, burnout or face other mental health difficulties.
Helping create a culture that supports mental healthWho we are
Why is it important?
The wellbeing of employees and the organization as a whole is related to how we all feel at work. The price of neglecting mental health can be tense relations, decreased productivity, protracted absences and spontaneous resignations.
Work can be meaningful, make us proud and support the development of relationships with others. A supportive, friendly environment prevents burn-out, depression and other mental health difficulties.
Organizations that support speaking openly about and contribute to overcoming difficulties, can be proud of higher employee engagement and efficiency. They are more successful in attracting and retaining talent. A focus on employee‘s welbeing is the sign of a sustainable organization.
Consistent and systemic actions lead to sustainable change.
When working with mental health at work and organisational culture, one-time measures, enforced positivity and solutions that fit all do not work. Only considering the organization as a unique whole, understanding the causes of certain issues and applying systemic measures can lead to desired change.
Both individuals and the community as a whole share a responsibility for taking care of mental health. Relationships and a health-friendly environment directly leads to overcoming the majority of difficulties. A sustainable organisation is a community based on meaningful relationships among people.
