Depression in the Workplace
Healthy people make good business sense
The working world needs to adopt a culture of caring. There should be no shame or penalty for needing to get help during the “work” day. According to research, depression ranks among the top three workplace problems for employee assistance professionals. And it’s estimated that depression costs employers an average of $44 billion each year in lost productivity.
Through awareness and access to depression treatment options as well as providing support opportunities for people to seek help, organizations can help promote a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.
