Taking care of mental health in the workplace means ensuring a healthy and positive working atmosphere. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. In other words, an atmosphere in which employees have a clear picture of their obligations and responsibilities and at the same time feel supported and know that they can always openly communicate their needs and get help when needed.
Dealing with symptoms and mental health difficulties can be challenging regardless of where you work. The good news is there are things you can do when you feel distracted and overwhelmed:
It is best to voice a concern or suspicion when you notice sudden changes in a colleague’s mood and behavior. Offer support but don’t force the story and let them decide when to share what they’re going through.
These stressors can lead to high absenteeism, low productivity and morale, and high staff turnover if left untreated.
Mental health difficulties are among the most severe health problems. They can negatively affect work performance and disrupt daily functioning. Poor mental health and well-being in the workplace result in lower productivity and affects the physical capacity of workers. However, burnout is a reality, and we all feel it, regardless of whether you work from the office or remotely. Psychological research indicates that improving the health and well-being of employees not only enhances their quality of life and increases motivation, productivity, engagement, and energy for work. At Codevix, we strive to provide a positive working environment characterized by flexibility, transparency, empathy, and understanding towards employees and their needs, as well as resources for the same.
