Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, mental health in the workplace has been a priority for both employers and employees alike. The evolution of culture since then has changed drastically. Many companies have gone remote, allowing for their employees to spend less time commuting and more time with their families, leading to increased happiness and improved mental health. A study from Quartz and Qualtrics found that 37% of the adults that participated found that their company culture improved since the pandemic, and 52% felt a greater sense of purpose in their work since the beginning of the pandemic.
The culture that is cultivated in your workplace means everything to your employees. “Despite a tumultuous year in the labor market, 87% of workers have reported to “love” or “like” their jobs, according to a recent survey conducted by job-search platform ResumeBuilder.com. Over half of respondents claim it’s because their work is personally fulfilling and meaning”
Not only does a strong sense of culture and community at work make employees happier, it also attracts skilled and talented workers, drives engagement and retention, and increases performance. At PES, we value the mental health of our team and always aim to create a sense of culture, inclusivity, and opportunity to excel.
