The pandemic has presented us with an opportunity to rethink how we work. We have the power to make workplaces engines for mental health and well-being. Doing so will require organizations to rethink how they protect workers from harm, foster a sense of connection among workers, show them that they matter, make space for their lives outside work, and support their long-term professional growth.
Revitalizing our workplaces to support mental health and well-being is how we can turn a moment of crisis into a moment of progress.
The Surgeon General’s Framework for Workplace Mental Health & Well-Being shows us how to begin that journey.
