Mental Health @ Work
In addition to having formal mental health criteria in our Healthy Workplace assessments, we also collaborate with One Mind at Work, to showcase and encourage companies in India to do more for mental health. Our annual conferences regularly have sessions and panel discussions on mental health. In 2020 we conducted several webinars on mental health and well-being, during COVID lockdown, and we also conducted surveys on the impact of working from home on employee well-being. We have developed messages on stress reduction in collaboration with the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore, India.We have developed case studies of our Healthy Workplaces in India doing extraordinary work to improve mental health in the workplace. Each has tackled and successfully deployed mental health programs across its large workforce (>100,000 employees). Our criteria are aligned with the WHO’s framework for healthy workplaces.
