If you’re looking to retain talent, make mental health resources easily accessible, and speak to your employees about what their needs are and how to help them. Things to include in a mental wellness program could be:

  • Having mental health first aiders at work
  • Mental health/duvet days
  • Counselling/therapy sessions
  • Employee Assistance Programmes

Companies can encourage employees to acquire knowledge and develop new skills by providing a training budget (for conferences, training, studies, courses, etc.), regular internal training sessions, and time for self-studying.
