2022 Workforce Attitudes Toward Mental Health


What's Covered 

Two years after the initial onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, employees are still grappling with the ramifications and fallout that upended life as we knew it. They’re freely opting out of the workforce — part of what’s now known as “The Great Resignation.”

But that’s only half of the story. The Great Resignation has led employees to seek careers that motivate and inspire them. To retain talent, employers now have the opportunity — and responsibility — to create workplaces where employees can have a sense of belonging and feel valued.

In this report, we’ll discuss:

-Year-over-year trends on employee mental health.
-How overall stress is lessening, but taking on new forms.
-Why “business as usual” no longer works as a strategy to retain employees.
-What employees today really want from their managers.
