By promoting life-work balance and establishing healthy work routines, employers can ensure their employees can feel and be the best versions of themselves.

The global pandemic has undoubtedly impacted our everyday lives, and many Americans have increasingly felt a strain on their mental health as the pandemic has gone on. According to a recent study conducted by Aetna and Morning Consult, 44% of Americans experienced a negative impact on the state of their mental health in October 2021, a 10-point increase from what respondents said in April 2020 (34%). Now, as we see more conversations around mental health take place, employers have the opportunity to join the discussion and reassess and reshape how they prioritize employee well-being.

Whether you are committed to promoting a healthy life-work balance (with an emphasis on ‘life’ before ‘work’), fostering conversations that address stigma, providing mental health-focused workplace resources and policies or all of the above, ensuring that employee well-being is top-of-mind can make all the difference in your employees and business performance. The bottom line? Companies who support their teams’ well-being drive business growth and improve health outcomes, especially during the unprecedented times we continue to face today.
