Mental Health Guide for Manager

How to support employees with their mental health at work

In this guide, we propose strategies for managers on how to best support employees with their mental health at work as a means of advocating early intervention and normalising the conversation. We’ve also produced a High Risk Script for leaders when dealing with employees experiencing a mental health crisis.

Why this is important

Over the past two years, we’ve lived through a pandemic, the emergence of The Great Resignation and the rise of the hybrid working model. At home, families continue to juggle job and caregiving responsibilities, with parents taking on more of a mental load than ever before.

In short: Life’s been hard and it’s taking a toll on our mental health. So as leaders, how can we create a mentally healthy workplace and support employees during times of crisis?

With employee retention and engagement being a priority for many leaders at this time, we need to be proactive and prompt in how we support employees. Especially as managers are not always equipped to recognise or intervene when it comes to mental health. It is important to know what to do and what resources are available at these critical times.

How triiyo helps

We put people at the heart of conversations about technology and look at how we can use innovation to drive connectivity in the workforce for increased retention post transitions, such as mental health leave.

We believe there is great opportunity in harnessing technology solutions to improve our human connection. Work is changing, life is evolving, but one fact remains, which is that humans are driven by connection and never more so in a rapidly changing world.

quote

At some point in our lives, almost everyone who works will need time away from their job to care for themselves or someone they love. A new baby, an aging parent, a sick family member, a startling diagnosis: these are constraints of life. Workers want to know that when the inevitable happens, they’ll be able to stay connected to their jobs and maintain some financial security.
