The Most Important Conversation to Ask About Your Company
Every company has important questions that need to be answered daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually. Among others, key questions cover topics including productivity, growth, expenses, revenue, processes, systems, and employee engagement. If you had to choose the most important question to ask it should probably be something that affects each of these areas, the entire scope of the business. Consider the following question….
“Does our workplace foster good mental health for everyone involved?”
Research studies show that employee (and leadership) mental health has an effect on productivity, accuracy in work, employee engagement, morale, and retention, as well as bottom line numbers. Instead of looking for the next best process to implement or a new system to purchase, what if we first looked at how we might promote better mental health in our workplace. The effects of pursuing a more enjoyable working environment, greater communication between management and employees, and a less stressful climate may lead to many of the gains you want to see for your business.
At Solace, we desire to see healthy workplaces that promote optimal mental health in the workplace. Mental health training provides education on early identification of mental health disorders, normalizes the topic of mental health in the workplace, and gives management a greater understanding of how to care for employees well. If your company has never completed mental health training contact us to get the conversation started today!
