AbstractOver the past several years, there has been an increasing recognition of the impact of mental health in the workplace. From the pervasive problems of stress and burnout, to the movement toward creating cultures of authenticity and belonging, to the examination of the costs of absenteeism and presenteeism, employee mental health has emerged as a critical component in building and retaining a productive and engaged workforce. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought mental health into even sharper focus. Anxieties about health and safety, social isolation, stress related to job loss and a lack of child care contributed to an alarming increase in mental health distress and diagnosable mental health conditions. From the chief executive ranks, through HR, down to front line workers, employers now recognize the importance of focusing on mental health and creating a supportive culture in the workplace.
