We'd like to share an important and exciting development within our company that holds significant value to us - the introduction of OpenUp as a valuable benefit for our employees!
Mental health is of utmost importance to us, as we understand that physical health is only one aspect of overall well-being. To support that, we have implemented various initiatives in the past, such as providing a gym membership and company bike. But we also recognized the need to prioritize the mental health of our employees, especially in a demanding work environment. Unfortunately, mental health in the workplace is often overlooked. According to a study by McKinsey, 60% of employees reported experiencing at least one mental health challenge in their workplace. This alarming statistic motivated us to seek solutions that would better support the mental well-being of our workforce.
When we learned about another company successfully integrating OpenUp into their organizational culture, we became intrigued to learn more. So, what does OpenUp do? The platform offers our team members the opportunity to connect with experienced therapists anonymously and discreetly to discuss their concerns and challenges. On top of that there is a media library for self-directed learning with a large selection of masterclasses and information material. The feedback from other companies that have already implemented OpenUp has been overwhelmingly positive. Many have reported improved well-being and increased productivity among their workforce.
We are confident that the introduction of OpenUp will have a positive impact on the mental health of our employees. They can now address their challenges with greater ease and confidence, knowing they have the necessary support.
