Dear Members and Friends

Because of the pandemic and the impact it is having on all our lives, more and more people now understand that good mental health is a priority for each of us. It is every bit as important as good physical health.

Two weeks ago, we hosted a terrific webinar with Nick Jonsson, CEO EGN Singapore. Nick openly shared his mental health crisis and how he overcame it. We need more brave people like Nick to stand up and share their stories to remove outdated and unhelpful stigma and taboos.

For that to happen, we need more business leaders and employers to take their responsibility to enable their teams’ mental health much more seriously. Here’s a word from your fellow member iota healthtech:-

When organisations increase their commitment to mental health wellness for their employees, they achieve a number of significant benefits: reduced employee healthcare costs, higher employee engagement, lower turnover and increased productivity.

A 2017 survey by the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) of 505 companies found that for every S$1 invested in workplace adjustment to support people recovering from mental health issues, there was an average return of S$5.60 through increased productivity and reduced absenteeism. The best employee wellness programs are the ones that are well integrated into the workplace culture of the firm and support employees in balancing the various aspects of their life. When leaders and employers start to place the mental wellbeing of workplaces as a strategic imperative, we will be one step closer to creating truly inclusive, resilient, supportive, and innovative workplaces.

Have a healthy week ahead.
