Combating Loneliness & Building Resilience For Tomorrow's Workplace
16 Dec 2020
Add to that the emotional turmoil resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, an uncertain economic climate and increased recognition of systemic racial injustice, and the state of mental health in America needs attention.
A staggering 61% of Americans experience loneliness and, in the Covid-19 era, just 37% of full-time workers exhibit high levels of resilience—or the ability to recover quickly from challenges—according to Cigna’s latest studies.
Not only do these dual challenges have negative impacts on mental health; they take a toll on the workplace, too, leading to increased absenteeism, turnover and missed workdays.
