Experiencing mental health challenges in the workplace may lead to decreased productivity, increased sick-related absenteeism, poor work quality, and poor job satisfaction. Despite research showing that mental health challenges affect a large population of the work force, workplaces and corporate culture is yet to fully acknowledge its role in creating spaces that are supportive and inclusive of people with mental health challenges. A more proactive approach for managing mental health in the workplace is a strategic imperative for employers. In this episode I am joined by Lethabo Sekele to talk about Mental Health in the Workplace. Lethabo is the Chief Executive at Workwell Workplace Mental Health - They equip organisations to creatively formulate strategies in the workplace to identify, understand and respond to employee mental health needs and challenges. Lethabo shares with us her experience, and the work she does in educating and empowering organisations.
