Whitepaper | Mental Health in Corporate India and what companies can do for employee well-being.
Most Indian organisations in the private sector have fixed policies for availing sick leave, defining the number of days and means to avail them. However, these policies remain largely silent or inaccessible when it comes to ‘mental health’.
Studies have found that over 42.5% of employees faced depression or general anxiety disorders. When employee mental health support escapes the purview of workplace policies, it takes a significant toll on overall productivity as well as employee engagement.
In an attempt to tackle the rising mental health crisis at work, this whitepaper focuses on building awareness about the seriousness of the issue, addressing myths about mental health concerns and discussing the importance of mental health in the workplace.
