ENGAGE Chat: Learning from 2020 to Create a Win-Win Mental Wellbeing Strategy for the Workplace

Did you know that 62% of missed workdays are attributed to mental health?

In a year where business and personal lives came to a grinding halt and then resumed in the "new normal," 70% of workers reported that anxiety and stress were reducing their productivity. Employers faced challenges as they tried to keep the business running while supporting employees at the same time. Yet, in this time of an unprecedented work environment, we've learned a great deal and much of it can be advantageous to your workplace moving forward.

Join Sara Tarca and a dynamic duo of mental health experts: Remi Kyek (Mental Health CT) and Mettie Spiess (A World Without Suicide), as they discuss strategies to continue building on the "Pandemic Positives." This session offers too much content for 30 minutes, so we've extended our session to a full hour! Continuing our ENGAGE tradition, we'll offer Attendees a final curbside takeaway in the form of a 2020 wrap-up: practical recommendations related to reducing stigma, leadership support/modeling, cultural transformation, strategic policies and virtual support tools.

About ENGAGE Chats

This monthly Zoom “meeting” (conversation) is by invitation-only and is meant to engage a community of like-minded employers like you. It will provide a forum for idea exchange, commentary, Q&A, and brainstorming. Discussion may include topics such as wellbeing strategy, best practice vendor applications, data-driven program components, senior leadership objectives, mental wellbeing, empowered performance outcomes and other current benefit solutions.

Our Wellbeing Strategy Consultant, Sara Tarca, will moderate the session, offering topics to initiate discussions each month, bringing guest speakers, client testimonials, and providing best practice recommendations. In the past, you may have asked for fresh, creative ideas to engage your employees and promote their health and wellbeing, and this dialogue should provide a new resource to assist in this regard.
