New Resource Center for Workplace Behavioral Health Features Research Commissioned by The Standard
October 15, 2020
The Standard recently launched an online resource center for employers called Behavioral Health in the Workplace that features two years-worth of new research based on work by Versta Research. The Standard commissioned Versta to design and execute two surveys as it continues to build out this important resource: (1) A survey of 2,004 full-time employees in the U.S. representing all sectors of the economy, and (2) a survey of 501 HR decision makers about how they manage employee absence and disability needs.
Quoting from the Resource Center:
Mental health conditions like depression, substance abuse and anxiety are impacting the workplace. We see it across ages, industries and positions. As events such as the COVID-19 pandemic disrupt people’s lives, it’s vital that employers grasp the scope of the problem.
To learn more about employee expectations and behavioral health conditions in the workplace, The Standard conducted the Behavioral Health Impact Study.
Based on this study, we’ve created this resource page with data, insights and ideas. Our goal? To help you better understand and respond to employee mental health and substance abuse issues — no matter what’s happening in the world.
Commenting on the Resource Center, Joseph Hopper, president of Versta Research said: “It thrills me that The Standard is able to offer such a rich, multifaceted selection of materials assembled out of the work we did for them. Thinking strategically about the stories you want to tell, and then designing the research with that in mind, really pays off, as this Resource Center demonstrates.”
The Resource Center offers a full array of blog posts, e-books, whitepapers, presentations, podcasts, and infographics. Among them are these data-rich materials with insights from the survey research:
