Mental health and wellness are strategic imperatives for American business. Depression, anxiety and feelings of isolation and hopelessness not only plague productivity and work quality, they can have a real impact on employee morale and our sense of shared purpose. By addressing problems and providing support early on, employers have the opportunity to prevent much more serious outcomes in their employees’ lives.
On November 13, 2019, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in collaboration with the President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End the National Tragedy of Suicide (PREVENTS) Executive Order Task Force and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, launched Wellbeing in the Workplace, a collaborative effort to prioritize mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
As part of the effort, coalition companies and organizations are signing a Pledge to Prioritize Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing in the Workplace. The pledge not only works to overcome stigma associated with mental health challenges, but commits to providing employees with the services and resources needed to promote mental wellness. The pledge also emphasizes the important role that veteran employees can play in reducing stigma and creating resiliency in the workplace.
“Together, we can make a meaningful difference in our employees’ lives and strengthen our communities.”
