In a recent article released by the World Health Organization(WHO), it is estimated that 12 billion working days are lost globally each year due to mental health struggles such as depression and anxiety. This loss is estimated to cost upwards of 1 trillion dollars per year in productivity. As post pandemic stress in the workplace continues to rise, employees and employers alike are reporting increased anxiety, burnout, and fear.
Workplace trends continue to evolve, leaving employees feeling everything from job security stress, a burden to return to the office and balance home life again, all while continuing to maneuver uncertain company changes.
It was also reported by the WHO, that safe and healthy work environments are linked to positive employee self esteem, mental health, and overall well being. This kind of mental and emotional well being leads to increased productivity and employee retention, an overall decrease is burnout and resentment.
So how do you become a place that supports the wellbeing and mental health of its staff and allows employees to thrive in such an uncertain world?
At BeWell, we believe that all work environments should support employees to take care of their mental and emotional health, so we’ve developed a program that helps employers do just that.
We have updated the long outdated EAP with a 4 session offering combining our integrated approach to mental and emotional wellbeing. Each employee on your team is paired with a therapist and/or mind-body coach who will address the unique concerns of your team members and their relationship to their job.
Sessions are focused on both their work and personal lives, so that our therapists can get a 360 view of your employee and understand stressors that may be impacting the employee’s ability to focus, participate, and be present at work. Through this method, we have found that employees are more fulfilled, more balanced, and able to engage meaningfully with longevity in your organization.
How It Works
The first step is meeting our team. Leadership of your organization meets with our team to address and assess your company’s specific needs. Once assessed, your company will be assigned a BeWELL Concierge to assist you throughout the process.
Your staff is introduced to our program in a company wide information session, where we dispel stereotypes, answer questions, and explain why taking care of one’s mental health is for everyone. Then we explain how our integrative approach works, and walk them through our mind/body approach. Here, we give an overview of Psychotherapy, EMDR Trauma Processing and Mind/Body Coaching.
This step is extremely important for employees because it builds trust and opens the door for them to begin to feel safe and seen. Our BeWell Concierge will address when to seek support, how to sign up for sessions, and how this program will benefit their overall wellbeing, both at home and at work. One the introduction has concluded, we host office hours to anyone who has questions about how to get started.
