How do you prioritise mental health and well-being in your workplace?
Mental Health [Psychosocial] Safety – The Competency Skills for Managers 5. Encouraging a Work-life Balance
Toxic skill level – "After sharing my diagnosis of depression [following the death of my sister] with my manager, they started treating me differently, excluding me from important projects and team discussions. It made me feel isolated and aggravated my feelings of sadness and grief." Low skill level – “We don't have any specific policies or practices in place to support work-life balance. It's up to individuals to manage their own time.” High skill level – “We prioritize work-life balance by setting clear expectations around workload and deadlines, ensuring realistic workloads for our team members. We encourage taking breaks and utilizing paid time off. We also discourage after-hours emails and promote the importance of disconnecting from work during personal time.” I invite you to assess yourself in The Ten Manager Competencies for Psychosocial Safety
