“Stress and work-life conflict are intertwined, and the latter has been documented as both a cause and an outcome of job stress... Job stress is increasingly recognized as a determinant of employee health and productivity.”
Help prevent stress and other mental health issues
Workers have responsibilities as parents, caregivers, and community members, in addition to caring for their own health and well-being. Balancing all of these responsibilities can lead to increased stress and other mental health issues. A workplace which provides mental health resources is more likely to have happier and more productive employees.
