Mental Health America’s new Mind the Workplace 2021 Report provides an opportunity to better understand the mental health challenges that employees across company size and industry are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Data in the report comes from the Work Health Survey, which measured the perceptions of 5,030 employees across 17 industries in the United States between February 13, 2020 – September 9, 2020. Survey questions measured financial insecurity, burnout, supervisor support, workplace stress, and mental illness.
Here are some major takeaways from the report:
- Most employees are experiencing signs of burnout.
- Employees are not receiving the support they need to manage stress.
- Workplace stress is severely impacting employees' mental health.
- Employees are concerned about their current financial situations.
