Supporting everyone’s wellbeing is essential for cultivating a mentally healthy workforce, and for retaining and motivating employees.

When there are good levels of mental wellbeing, we feel life is in balance and that we can cope effectively with what each day brings, as well as building our levels of resilience.

Poor mental wellbeing has profound personal costs, and also impacts on an organisation because of absenteeism, presenteeism, and employee turnover.

The role of managers and leaders in this respect is pivotal in creating, modelling and sustaining the day-to-day practices that promote high levels of performance and wellbeing.

Given the increased numbers of employees now working remotely, this additional facet presents managers and leaders with an additional set of challenges in being able to monitor and support the mental wellbeing of their (remote) employees.
