Making mental health your business

by |

Despite HR professionals taking steps to eradicate stigma around mental health in the workplace, workers don’t seem convinced.

A recent report found nearly 43% of employees believe certain aspects of their job make them feel anxious or depressed, and 60% say they’re too embarrassed to disclose information about their mental health.

Indeed, over 88% say management should be given training on how to deal with mental health.

Robin Davies, People & Culture Director at Lion NZ, will be at the upcoming National HR Summit in Auckland to show delegates how an innovative approach to this important can issue foster culture change.

Davies will tackle the issues of building a safety and wellbeing culture; addressing the stigma around mental health; and supporting employees through mental health issues. She will discuss how employers can spot the ‘red flags’ of employee burnout, and also how to see if progress is being made.
