Webinar Recording: Unpacking the Mental Health Needs of a Multi-Generational Workforce

DMECResources, Surveys, Tools & Tactics Archives

Are you using effective communication methods that resonate among the diverse generations represented in your workplace? With four generations active in today’s workforce, from Traditionalists to Millennials, mental health outcomes may vary depending upon how resources are communicated and promoted to these different employee cohorts.  In most cases, HR, benefits, and disability managers aren’t aware of whether resources are being promoted, or the impact of an intervention when these important resources are accessed by employees.

This webinar highlighted case studies of three diverse employers who invested heavily in mental health programs, and how they achieved positive results and significant savings. We also highlighted approaches for communicating and supporting younger employees who are beginning to enter the workforce, and acknowledging greater mental health needs compared to previous generations.
