In this week’s We’re Still Here podcast, EG editor Samantha McClary is joined by reporter Lucy Alderson to talk about the findings from EG’s latest mental health survey.
The industry remains one of most affected by mental health issues with half of respondents saying they had experienced unmanageable stress and/or mental health issues in their current role. A figure well above the national average of one in six.
The pandemic has understandably had an impact too, with more than 50% of respondents saying they thought that working from home had negatively affected their mental health. Stress around job security, finances and feelings of isolation were also highlighted as specific issues this year.
But, the Covid crisis has also pushed the importance of understanding mental health and wellbeing much further up the agenda of many businesses, with a whopping 20 percentage point move in the correction direction when it came to how comfortable people felt talking about their mental wellbeing at work.
Visit EG’s mental health hub at https://www.egi.co.uk/mental-health/ for the results in full and much, much more.
Or listen in to this week’s We’re Still here for the lowdown from Lucy Alderson, some reasons to be cheerful from Samantha McClary and for your chance to figure out just why they spend quite so long talking about Double Deckers.
