The prevalence of mental health problems in employees makes it a pressing issue in its own right, and organizations have woken up to this fact. Senior leaders are recognizing that the success of their organization means having a healthy and productive workforce, and good mental health is a key factor in that equation.
The 5th Building Healthier Workplaces Conference will offer an engaging opportunity for health, HR and organizational development professionals, as well as managers, to:
- increase their awareness of the burden of mental ill-health in the workforce and how organizations can commit to reducing this burden;
- learn mental-health promoting practices for the workplace; and
- understand how to educate employees about, and raise their awareness of, mental health problems in the workplace.
