Ask Your Team

Icon: Grayscaled linework of three people with thought bubbles above their heads.
  • What makes you feel like a valued member of this team?
  • What do you look forward to doing at work each day?
  • What resources do you use that are essential to your success? Are there specific resources missing that are creating stress? If so, how can I help?

The extremely positive effects of engagement

Engagement improves mental health. Period.


5x More Likely

Employees who were engaged were five times more likely than all other employees to report later that their job had an "extremely positive impact" on their mental health.

To strengthen your team's engagement and mental health, try focusing on Q12 item Q05. My supervisor, or someone at work, seems to care about me as a person. By gauging your team members' responses to this item, you can better create a compassionate environment for them.

Get conversation starters and best practices that show your team members you care.

Elements of Wellbeing

Organizations win when employees are well.

Contrary to popular belief among leaders, employee wellbeing plays a crucial role in achieving many important business outcomes. But to succeed with employee wellbeing, you first need to understand it. For starters, employee wellbeing has five separate elements that you have an effect on:

  • Career — You like what you do every day.
  • Social — You have meaningful friendships in your life.
  • Financial — You manage your money well.
  • Physical — You have energy to get things done.
  • Community — You like where you live.

Learn about employee wellbeing and how to improve each of the five elements.


A Word of Encouragement

When it comes to employee mental health, you don't need to have all the answers. Providing support when employees need it can be enough. Learn as much as possible about employee engagement and wellbeing and understand your employee assistance program — or at least know where to learn more about it. This way, when employees are in need, they know they can go to you for help.
