When someone’s mental health is flagging, they’re simply not able to do their best work – and they won’t feel good about trying, either.
As well as lower levels of energy and motivation, they can also find it difficult to fully engage with colleagues or with the company. Tell-tale signs of an employee who’s struggling might include the following...
It costs you money
It costs you time
It costs you people
Looking after your team’s mental health means more than supporting the few who are facing challenges (although this is important). It means helping everyone in the middle ground to thrive, too. And it means having a system in place for spotting poor mental health early on.
By focusing on actively maintaining your team’s mental wellbeing, those big work-disrupting problems should crop up less often – saving the company time and money, whilst saving employees the emotional pain.
