How important has it become to know about the Mental Health and Wellness of employees post Covid 19?
Its not that Mental health and wellness were neglected pre Covid 19 but after Covid 19 things have changed a lot. People are bound to spend long hours at home and less human interaction + work stress is adding a toll on people’s health. Hence Mental health and wellness is now becoming a major element which needs to be addressed by every industry and every HR department.
The scale of mental distress since the start of the pandemic requires more integrated, whole‑of-society mental health support and if it is not it will lead to permanent scarring which will be not good for any organization or industry. Hence you can see a lot of companies coming up with innovative ideas to keep employees happy and engaged which in return will bring some positive outcomes.
