Embracing Mental Health in the Workplace in Asia

Attend the official launch of Community Business’ pioneering new research to learn why addressing mental health in your workplace in Asia is critical

Lead Sponsor

Description

Emerging statistics around mental health are alarming – both globally and in Asia. The unique dynamics in Asia, including the deep sense of taboo and shame associated with this topic, mean that the issues are arguably even more acute in this part of the world.

Yet, few companies today are addressing this critical aspect of employee wellbeing in their organisations. Community Business’ pioneering new research, Embracing Mental Health in the Workplace in Asia, is designed to highlight the business case for addressing mental health in the workplace, increase understanding on the issues in Asia and highlight the role the corporate sector can play to impact positive change.
