Purpose at Work: For Wellness & Mental Health Webinar

Originally posted on the CommPRO.biz website.

The Institute for Public Relations and Cision just released a new report called,“The Business Case for Focusing on Employee Mental Health.” This study examines conversations about mental health in the workplace with a focus on employee and employer perspectives, burnout, quiet quitting, the four-day workweek, and current corporate mental health initiatives.

In this special episode of Diversity in the PR Classroom, attendees learn how employers and professors can adapt these findings to address mental health at work, in the classroom, and beyond.

Watch the playback to discover how burnout and other findings are impacting your students.

Some Key Findings:

  • Gen Z and Millennials were the most frequent contributors to conversations about mental health.
  • Some employers are testing out the four-day workweek with mixed results, but most reactions are positive from both the employer and employee perspectives.
  • Employees said employee resource groups (ERGs) and peers in the workplace were critical support programs for mental health.
  • Employees want benefits and policies to support their mental health such as flexibility, better time off policies, and stronger leave programs.
