4 Ways You Can Build A Mentally Healthier Workplace
For an employee to work efficiently, there needs to be a healthy work-life balance. With mentally unwell employees, it will give rise to high rates of staff turnover and absenteeism. Another group would be those working past their limits just to get the task done while disregarding their health.
Helping your staff to have a boost in their mental health is not only important for improving an employee’s well-being, but is also a necessary action to take in order for the health of the entire organisation. To start off, what you can do is first foster certain initiatives to create a healthy workplace.
Some of the methods by which you can build a mentally healthy workplace have been discussed below. Keep reading to find out what they are.
Help employees become team players
To improve the productivity of your employees, you must nurture a team spirit amongst them. Strong camaraderie can help enhance the productivity of your employees. It would help if you encourage your employees to pursue hobbies, carry out team-building exercises, and promote a healthy work environment. This will help your employees to become team players.
Ensuring they are able to juggle all the different tasks in one place will allow those from different departments to mingle with each other.

With that being said, if you’re still looking for a workspace for your business – we have the cheapest self-storages and workspaces available for you to pick from.

Having a spacious workplace is important in creating a healthier working environment. Employees enjoy bringing personal items to work as it gives the motivation to complete their tasks.
For example, the workstation should have a compartment where one can put up sticky notes or photos. Employees may choose to keep pictures of family members on their workstations or in their lockers. Provide them with magnets or blu tacks so they can put them up easily. This will go a long way in improving the productivity of your employees.
Discussing personal matters
Topics like mental health problems, family crises, and other personal matters often affect the performance of employees. However, if your work atmosphere is comfortable, friendly, and helpful, then your employees will be able to freely discuss their problems and learn about methods to overcome their issues. Discussing personal problems with colleagues can bring forward quick solutions to the problems.
At the same time, having tight security may help to ease the fears of employees with anxiety. We provide 24-hour accessibility and CCTV surveillance for all our self storages and workspaces, so the safety of your employees are always assured. Basic facilities we are also able to provide include a powerpoint, air conditioning, as well as lighting. Meanwhile, in regards to our lease terms – we are also pretty flexible.

Design a bright and cheerful workspace
If your office layout is bright and sunny, then your employees will look forward to coming to the work. The walls of your office should be coloured in soothing colors like shades of green. This will make your office space functional and well-designed. The workstations for your employees should be spacious and well lit so that your employees can work without tiring themselves out. Well-designed workstations add to the functionality of your office space.
