This research will provide you with:

  • insights about mental health challenges employers are facing, and
  • suggestions on ways to enhance your workplace wellness strategy.

Here is an overview of the key findings[1]:

  • Many employers focused their health and wellness initiatives, programs, and services on better supporting their plan members transitioning through the pandemic.
  • Prioritizing and strengthening mental health initiatives and awareness campaigns became crucial for organizations to increase benefits usage, specifically Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs).
  • Employers have recognized the importance of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) in their workplace wellness strategy.

Moving your DE&I strategy forward

You can use our DE&I report to take a proactive approach when addressing DE&I in your workplace. We encourage you to read both reports to understand the importance of a DE&I strategy, and how it can support workplace mental health. A mentally healthier workforce is essential to your organization’s success.
