USD 49


Recent years have seen employers taking an increasingly proactive and preventative approach in managing employee health and wellness. While physical health and wellbeing is a topic that is frequently discussed in the corporate space, mental health and wellbeing on the other hand is often woefully neglected or sidelined due to its status as a taboo subject in the society, a lack of awareness on how mental health and wellbeing strategies would work in the workplace, and the prevalent perception amongst business stakeholders that mental wellbeing is of secondary importance to its physical counterpart.

However, research has shown that poor mental health amongst staff has severely detrimental effects on business productivity and company morale, and could cause employers significant costs through increased absenteeism, presenteeism and high turnover rates.

Designed by Human Resources Online, a pan-Asia media & events brand that is passionate about the progression of HR, this online course aims to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to:

  • Get employee mental health and wellness on your organisation’s business agenda;
  • Achieve buy-in for investment into employee mental healthcare and wellness;
  • Spot concerns and take action to support employees; and
  • Implement sustainable mental wellness initiatives in the company.

Attend this course if you want to:

  • Break down the stigma around mental health in the workplace and make employee mental wellbeing a core business priority in your company
  • Develop skills and strategies to support a distressed employee
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of mental health issues in the workplace
  • Address performance concerns when mental health is a factor
  • Put in place a proactive strategy to tackle the root causes of work-related mental health issues, support employees who are experiencing a mental health problem, and keep employees engaged
