Capterra‘s latest survey of 1,100 Canadian employees reveals that mental health support must be a priority in the workplace, and explores workers’ preferences for the tools and methods utilized by employers to support mental health. 75% of participants believe that it’s a priority for their companies to address mental health problems in the workplace. While the majority of employees want to communicate face-to-face to discuss their mental health, some prefer other options such as email, virtual meetings, phone calls, and anonymous employee surveys.
However, the report revealed that only 39% of Canadian SMEs offer mental health services to their employees, such as flexible scheduling and wellness activities. In fact, flexible work hours were cited by 81% of respondents as the most valuable mental health resource provided by employers. Those who had access to workplace support were more inclined to report good mental health at the time of the study, and 93% of these respondents feel satisfied with what they are being offered.
