It’s no surprise that in 2020, workers were more stressed-out than ever.
In the workforce, adapting to a “new normal” must include workplace health initiatives focused on improving workplace well-being. A special focus on mental health and stress management is an absolute must, according to the Mental Health America’s new Mind the Workplace 2021 Report.
The major takeaways of that report included:
- Employees don’t have stress management support
- Most employees are dealing with burnout symptoms
- Employees are worried about their current financial situations
- Workplace stress is severely impacting employees' mental health
The data compiled is from the Work Health Survey, which gathered insight from 5,030 U.S. employees across 17 industries. The survey ran from February to September 2020 and included details on burnout, supervisor support, workplace stress, financial insecurity, and mental illness.
