The Case for Making your Workforce Happy

The American Express Health Minds programme is an interesting one. Blogger Andie Burjek explains why it is so successful. Let me take excerpts from his blog.

He starts off with the hugely popular Fraser show that some of us may be aware of. He describes about how common depression is and the kind of economic burden an unhappy workforce puts on a workplace. He uses several examples from the popular Fraser show to highlight how the show delved into human emotions. Several episodes dealt with the major highs and lows of human emotional existence. The article urges readers to consider how certain key moments and relationships of the Frasier canon perfectly describe the basic human emotions:
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Worry
  • Joy
  • Guilt/ Jealousy and
  • Grief

He tries and makes it a point to highlight the importance of support for a person going through unhappiness. Just as the people in your personal life should be that support, the company you work for can be, too. Organisations should initiate programmes such as Healthy Minds program at American Express. Several considerations to make the programme successful are listed:

First, give mental health the time and resources it needs. Second, create a positive brand. for example, Healthy Minds has a brightly colored aesthetic and a slogan to go with it: Find Your Bright Side. It also has a very clear goal to offer these services and encourage employees to use them. Third, get leadership engaged as well. Finally, come up with a unique, engaging education opportunity. The goal was to ensure the workforce manages emotional challenges and remains happy. So, it's time to ask yourself: Is your workforce happy? Consider the real impact of unhappiness on both your company and your employees.
