Changing The Game: How leaders can reduce the stigma of mental health at work.
IT IS ALL OF US. According to a new Accenture research, mental health is not a minority issue anymore. In the workplace, it touches almost all employees and can impact their ability to enjoy and live life to the full.
In these times of unprecedented change, it is important for leaders to hold up the mirror to themselves, in order to create an environment where it is acceptable to speak openly about mental health at work.
In this session Aarathi speaks about FOSUitis (the Fear Of Speaking Up) and how it relates to mental health and wellness. In her unique style of storytelling, she shares how leaders can make a positive difference and change the game by creating a safe, supportive culture at the workplace.
