In times of permacrisis, rolling out a wellbeing strategy that meets the needs of your people can feel impossible. It’s not. Let Unmind’s new research, bitesize videos and global webinars be your guide.

Mental ill-health costs the global economy around US $1 trillion. Every year

It’s a scary enough statistic, made worse when you remember there are countless experiences tangled up inside it. Friends facing addiction. Teams spiralling into burnout. Workmates contemplating suicide. Every year.

In 2023, it’s about time we get impatient. Because, while tech innovation moves fast (and, by this point, there are no shortage of shiny ‘solutions’ vowing to fix workplace mental health) supporting employee wellbeing in a way that really works takes, well, work. And lots of it.

To help kickstart this new year – and new, impatient age – Unmind is packing a giant stack of free, BS free materials. Each one custom-built to help boost your understanding, and shape your organisation’s wellbeing strategy.

Like what? Well, we’re glad you asked.

2023 Workplace Mental Health Trends report

We surveyed 850 demographically diverse HR decision-makers in large companies around the world. We then analysed the insights, spoke to senior pros at leading global firms, then boiled everything down into nine, easy-to-understand trends, and paired this with actionable steps you can take in 2023.

Though we’ll save the trends themselves for the report proper, here are a few eye-opening things from this year’s data:

  • 94% of HR decision-makers say scientific rigour and an evidence base are ‘important’ or ‘very important’ factors when choosing a wellbeing solution.
  • 72% claim financial stress impacts employee performance, but just 3 in 10 feel managers are equipped to have conversations about financial worries with their staff.
  • 65% say employee expectations for wellbeing support have increased in the last year.
  • 95% reckon there’s a growing expectation for the workforce itself to foster positive mental health and wellbeing.

Why not read the report in full? It really is a belting read.
