Mental Health at work - are you doing enough for your team?
I had a reality check the other day. I thought that I was very attuned to caring for the mental health of my employees. But then I realised that I'm a hypocrite because I'm focusing on the wrong things. Think about a typical employee engagement/satisfaction survey. It asks questions like "Are you proud to work here?". I'd like to discuss whether we should be asking harder hitting questions which could help prevention: "How often do you go home exhausted?", "How often in the past year have you cried in the toilets?", "How often do you go home to your partner and say, 'I can't cope?'". Let's challenge ourselves to be more responsible rather than doing things which make us feel better about ourselves...free yoga session anyone?
