Shaping the Future of Work: Enhancing Mental Health in the Workplace Virtual Live Event

Wed, 10/06/2021 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm


Join a live conversation about the role of employers in creating supportive and psychologically safe workplaces. Co-hosted by PBS & Mental Health America, this is part of the discussion around the Future of Work. 

COVID-19 has put mental health front and center for organizations as the safety of employees becomes paramount to survival. New research is indicating that employees are putting in more hours than ever, experiencing burnout and exposure to added stressors such as finances or the inability to separate personal and professional commitments and roles. These shifts and changes are pushing employee well-being up the ladder of corporate priorities.

This presents a significant challenge for leaders. Keeping in mind the responsibility to create the conditions for people to do their best work, they are grappling with questions of how to can they strategically invest in mental health, provide mental health resources, train managers, and mold their cultures to help employees navigate the future of work.
