Webinar Recording: Examining Mental Health in the Workplace

DMECSurveys, Tools & Tactics Archives


Mental health is a universal asset, but one of significant importance for workers and organizations. The mental well-being of a company’s workforce can make or break performance, production, and profitability. Communicating what resources and support are available can make the difference with engagement and utilization. By being proactive in encouraging employees to maintain good mental health, employers can minimize problems like absenteeism and presenteeism in their workforce.

To better understand the state of mental health in the workplace, Unum conducted online research with 1,850 U.S. employed adults, of which 500 working adults self-identified with a diagnosed mental health issue. In partnership with DMEC, additional research was conducted among 268 human resources professionals. This session broke down the results of the findings, and gave practical tips to improve your approach to mental health in the workplace.
