When was the last time you considered your employee’s mental / behavioral health needs? Your employee’s mental health is your business. With Lessonbee, you can support mental health at work, at home, and in the community. With more than two-thirds of U.S employees opting to work from home since COVID-19, helping employees and their families improve their mental health may be the most important step you can take to ensure a safe and productive workforce.
Mental illness and substance abuse issues cost employers between $79 and $105 billion each year, according to the Center for Prevention and Health. Absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased health care costs are just a few of the ways mental health issues cost employers money. Simply put, how your employees think, feel, and behave impacts your bottom line. According to the CDC, symptoms of anxiety and depression more than tripled among U.S. adults in 2020 over the previous year. The pandemic has exacerbated mental and behavioral health conditions like eating disorders, substance abuse, and obsessive compulsive disorders.
