WAY TO WELLNESS #74
The workplace can be a great environment for making social connections and building supportive relationships. People who work in healthy workplaces are more likely to share ideas, work efficiently, engage with each other socially, and feel comfortable being themselves. Whether working in a trade, an office, in retail, or the arts, the culture of a workplace is important for employee mental health.
Workplace wellness programs are becoming a bigger part of the overall strategy of many companies. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) have been shown to be very helpful in lifting mental and emotional wellbeing in workplaces all over the world.
