Now as a result of the pandemic, businesses have understood the criticality of psychological well-being. Numerous organizations have already made great strides toward eradicating the dogma and increase mindfulness about psychological illness and urge more employees to reach out for help, if needed. In the wake of the rapidly climbing suicides rates, there is also an increase in employee stress and depression. Such conditions are driving up medical care costs, as indicated by Aetna Behavioral Health. In the near future, bosses will have to work to de-stigmatize mental health by extending mental health benefits such as increasing “Days-off to take care of one’s mental well-being” and supporting different activities to improve the emotional well-being of their employees.


  • One of the significant changes during 2020 was the gradual shift in looking into the personal lives of your employees.

Furthermore, when an employer supports their employees’ lives effectively, they perform at a higher level while also leading an easier life.
