Summary

The article argues that employers need to include mental health in their approach to workplace wellbeing. The article claims that while most employers attest to the importance of wellbeing, they also believe that attending to employee wellbeing will lower organizational performance. The article suggests that interventions work best when preceded by problem assessment and accompanied by strong management. The article concludes that the ability for management training to effectively enhance employee mental wellbeing depends upon whether the organization has a strong culture of wellbeing in place.

"When you have a high level of employee involvement in regards to the decision-making and problem-solving; and, when employees know that they are not alone to deal with their personal issues; and, when they see opportunities to become healthier with their employer's help; then, that business will be able to count on its greatest resource, its employees."
