Fantastic article by #Cigna on the importance of supporting #workforcehealthandwellbeing. Some key takeaways from this article:
*The 2021 Work and Well-being Survey by the American Psychological Association (APA) revealed that 71% of workers generally felt tense or stressed out during the workday, and they were three times more likely to seek employment elsewhere than those not feeling stressed.
*Benefits that improve job satisfaction: Beyond specific mental health services, employee feedback in the APA study indicates other areas companies should seriously consider in order to improve job satisfaction. These include opportunities for growth, better compensation, reduced workload, additional paid time off, and ensuring a safer work environment.
*All this makes prioritizing your employees’ mental health more than a compassionate thing to do; it’s also a wise business decision. In a 2021 study commissioned by Cigna survey data revealed that companies with a healthy workforce saw higher productivity, stronger staff morale, and greater employee retention and loyalty.
Supporting your employees is not only the right thing to do. It’s good for business.
