Covid-19 has brought the importance of health- both physical and mental- to the center stage of the corporate agenda. It exacerbated the employees’ feelings of anxieties, fears, and depression brought mental health issues to the fore, and highlighted the insufficiency of our present employee assistance and benefits systems.
According to a global study by Mind Share Partners in association with SAP and Qualtrics, 42 per cent of employees have reported a decline in their mental health since the pandemic began.
