Improve retention.

34% of employees (and 50% of millennials) have left previous roles for mental health reasons.

Maximize engagement.

217 million days of work are lost in productivity every year due to unaddressed mental health conditions.

Reduce absenteeism.

Employees with unaddressed mental health conditions experience 31x more absentee days than employees without a condition.

Focusing on wellness without naming mental health can alienate those facing challenges even further.
