Why Mental Health Matters at Work

Running a successful business takes more than just profits; it's about creating a thriving workplace. With happy employees you’ll surely get the highest productivity and support in your business. In this newsletter, we'll discuss why mental health should be a top priority for every business owner.

The Employee-Productivity Connection

Discover practical ways to create a supportive environment that boosts employee wellbeing and, in turn, your bottom line. There are many ways where you can look out for your employee's mental health and wellbeing. You can conduct a mental health check-in every month to see how your employees are doing and ask if they’re satisfied with their current workload. Remember, happy and mentally healthy employees are more productive.

Recognizing the Signs

As a business owner, understanding when an employee may be struggling is crucial. We'll share some red flags to look out for and how to approach these sensitive conversations.

1. Decline in Performance: You can notice this when your employee drops in the quality or quantity of their work output. Projects that were once completed on time are now delayed or incomplete. Check in with them and ask them if there’s something wrong or if there’s something that they need help with.

2. Frequent Absences: An increase in unexplained or frequent absences, tardiness, or requests for time off can be a sign of personal or health issues.

3. Changes in Behavior: Sudden shifts in behavior, such as increased irritability, mood swings, or withdrawal from social interactions with colleagues.

4. Physical Symptoms: Visible signs of stress, like fatigue, exhaustion, weight changes, or a noticeable decline in personal grooming and hygiene.

5. Decreased Engagement: A lack of enthusiasm or disinterest in their work, decreased participation in meetings, or disengagement from team activities.

When you notice these signs, it's crucial to approach the employee with empathy and offer support. Open, honest, and non-judgmental conversations can be a significant step toward helping them address their challenges and regain their productivity and wellbeing.
