As an employer, you want your business to succeed. Which means wanting your employees to succeed. Setting them up for success means taking care of their health, both physically and mentally.
Remote work is here to stay and that means that your employees may not always live in the same city, state or country. Virtual care is one of the best answers to this problem. Especially when it comes to building an employee mental health program. Incorporating the use of companies like BetterHealth makes the care available to everyone and ensures that it is not location-dependent.
Changing the narrative around mental health is one sure way to make sure your staff feels taken care of. This will in turn guarantee they feel more job satisfaction and produce a higher quality work product with increased creativity.
Absenteeism vs. Presenteeism
There are zero benefits to having your staff feel pressured to ‘show up’ if they are suffering. Whether they have the flu, a family member is in the hospital or they’re struggling with depression. This can lead to stress, burnout, spreading dissension and inadequate work quality just to name a few. Absenteeism can bring a high cost but presenteeism is much higher.
People are reevaluating how they spend their time, the lives they want to lead and how they work. A significant amount of time and energy is spent at work, making sure that the work is being done within a company that respects them is important.
