Mental Health & Employee Engagement: What You Need to Know Now

Tuesday, June 15, 2021
1-2:30 p.m. ET

Communications and HR strategies to tackle the workplace’s #1 challenge

Employee Wellness • Human Resources • Corporate Benefits

Employees consistently cite mental health as a top concern these last 12 months. However, a mere 17% of employees are having conversations with their managers about mental health and well-being and only a third of employees feel like their employer has taken steps to support their mental health. It is evident that employers must do a better job at mitigating workplace stress, burnout, loneliness, depression and other health issues.  

On Tuesday, June 15, join us for a must-attend webinar presented by Ragan’s Workplace Wellness Insider. Dr. Karla Lever, Director of Employee Assistance Program at Atrium Health and Aparna Balasundaram a Global Leader, Mental Health, Wellbeing and Resiliency, will kick off a 90-minute webinar with a primer in understanding mental health issues in the workplace and how to recognize the signs of those struggling. We continue with wellness champions from Breakfast Culture, Cozen O’Connor, ADP and Arbitration Forums sharing strategies and tactics to best partner with communicators and management teams to alleviate the strain on employees to increase presenteeism, reducing absenteeism and create a better place to work for your employees, whether they’re remote or in the office.  Join Ragan and our esteemed speakers to get ideas and strategies on this critical challenge.

This employee wellness webinar on June 15th will explore strategies that wellness leaders and their communications partners can use support workers with mental health problems and to create accessible and productive environments, both in the office and remotely.

Supportive Performance Management: Addressing Mental Health in the Workplace

Many employees can and do work while experiencing mental health issues such as depression or anxiety, with little impact on productivity. However, like any illness, there are situations in which the employee is not able to work due to the severity of the condition. In a majority of cases, supportive performance management can be the key to continued productivity. In this session, you will learn:

  • How to discuss mental health issues in the workplace to take away the negative stigma
  • How to communicate without judgment while being supportive and clear
  • Ways to consider emotional triggers and better understand the perspective of the employee
  • How to focus on the intended outcome & solutions rather than the problem
  • How to help employees develop their own solutions so they are more committed to overcoming the obstacles
  • Methods of creating a positive and constructive and safe environment
  • Ways for HR/Wellness and Communications departments to partner together to share the mental health initiatives internally and externally
  • How to best monitor and measure the effects of the mental health support provided to employees

Mental Health & The Remote Employee: Creating a Remote Work Policy to Reduce Burnout & Loneliness

Burnout is a phenomenon that is becoming progressively common worldwide, so it’s important to be able to identify the initial symptoms of this struggle and implement a solution before it escalates. Loneliness is also something that has repeatedly come up over the course of the global pandemic pushing remote work onto employees. So, as we look forward, how do we create a remote work policy that reduces loneliness, increases job satisfaction and lowers burnout?

This session will cover:

  • Identifying the signs of burnout
  • Describing flexible work options
  • Understanding the benefits of flexible & remote work policies
  • Examining the key determinants of loneliness in America’s workforce
  • Understanding the costs of loneliness in your employees
  • Determining the best remote work policy to improve job satisfaction, employee experience and innovation
