In the view of McKinsey & Company, "if the companies make mental health services more accessible and intervene in the workplace in ways that improve well-being, they will simultaneously make an investment that will provide real improvements in employee outcomes and consequences in company performance". Thus, an increase in workplace satisfaction leads to a more significant ROI.
Implementing emotional well-being programs and providing the correct tools will help employees who are more vulnerable to a feeling of stress, depression, or anxiety to build their self-esteem, making them more productive.
Globally, an estimated 12 billion working days are lost yearly to depression and anxiety at a cost of US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity.
60% of employees feel anxious, and 56% are experiencing symptoms of depression.
76% of our professionals are experiencing moderate to high levels of stress – a percentage increase of 13% compared to data from 2022.
