Let’s talk about something that can be difficult to talk about: behavioral health. Issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and substance abuse contribute to high turnover, burnout, exhaustion, and decreased motivation. It’s time to peel back the curtain. We’re not helping our employees by avoiding the topic like politics at the Thanksgiving table.

Sitting in a rocking chair, gazing out the window, I found myself patting my son’s back to the artificial sounds mimicking his heartbeat. Beep…beep…beep. It was robotic melodic and confirmation he was snoozing calmly in my arms. This moment nearly fit the picture I painted in my mind of our first days at home together. But, we weren’t home. This was his first home, but not ours, and the cacophony of alarms and sputters from the NICU poked at that unfortunate reality.

It’s not news that technology allows us to work all the time. The effect is that workdays aren’t limited to “work hours” and the workplace isn’t limited to the office space. Add in a competitive environment where employees want to be seen putting in extra work, and all of a sudden the 60-hour work week becomes standard. However, the brave rebels who limit their hours worked to 49 or less are generally as productive, create better quality work, and are healthier and less stressed than their overworked counterparts.

It’s a simple fact that most employers face increasing healthcare costs. One way to address the impact of rising costs is to encourage the workforce to become healthier through personal wellness plans. When employees take an active role in their health and wellness, the chances decrease that they will have complicated conditions that require costly treatments. Beyond the economic motivation for companies to encourage wellness plans, healthy employees are happier and more productive, too.
