New England Employee Benefits Council (NEEBC)
No one wants to talk about it, let alone in the workplace...depression. But depression isn't a topic only for our personal lives. The impact of depression goes beyond the personal realm to significantly impact the bottom line of organizations from every sector, ultimately costing employers billions of dollars each year.
Not only should employers learn to recognize depression, but in order to thrive, should help employees get proper treatment.
During this webinar you will:
- Gain an understanding of the burden of depression in the workplace and how depression manifests itself and affects employee performance and productivity.
- Attain insights into the barriers to addressing depression, including stigma and lack of resources available to employers.
- Learn how to spot depression in the workplace.
- Hear about tools and resources employers can utilize to better support mental health and productivity of their workforce.
As an example, a case study of a successful mental health initiative by Kent State University will be discussed, including initial steps to implementation; overcoming challenges and barriers; and results, outcomes and next steps. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to identify and address this pervasive condition and hear what others have implemented.
