Mental Health at Work
The 2023 Mental Health at Work Report from Mind Share Partners has revealed a profound shift in employee expectations. While 94% of HR professionals believed benefits could improve mental health in the workplace last year, workers place a higher value on a healthy and sustainable work culture today. Organizations must shift their focus toward addressing the root causes of burnout and exhaustion. A clear message from employees has emerged: traditional benefits and self-care perks alone are no longer enough.
