Mental health is a crucial part of workplace safety for many reasons. By promoting emotional wellness and supporting employees’ mental health, your organization can improve job performance, boost productivity and reduce absenteeism.

We also know that new hires make up just 22% of the workforce, but account for 40% of workplace injuries. This means retaining your valuable employees is another key to building a safe workplace. The best way to attract and retain top talent is to create a culture in which your employees feel valued and cared for.

This collection of resources is designed to help employers do just that by supporting their employees’ mental health.
