Managing health & mental wellbeing in the workplace

A comprehensive online course for Hong Kong's HR professionals, managers, supervisors, team leaders and corporate counsellors

Begins on 14 September 2020

While physical health and wellbeing is a topic that is frequently discussed in the corporate space, mental health and wellbeing is woefully neglected in Hong Kong. Sidelined as a taboo subject within our society. A survey of the mental health and wellbeing of Hong Kong’s citizens conducted by the Department of Health in 2018 has found that over 40 percent of the respondents rated their mental health status in the past six months preceding the survey as fair, poor or very poor.

Research has shown that poor mental health amongst staff has severely detrimental effects on business productivity and company morale, manifesting itself in absenteeism, presenteeism and high turnover rates, all of which can be expensive to a company.

There is a general lack of awareness on how mental health and wellbeing strategies could work in the workplace as well as a prevalent perception amongst business stakeholders that mental wellbeing is of secondary importance. However, proactive and preventative approaches are being developed to help combat this stigmatism and to improve employee’s mental health and wellbeing.

Designed by Human Resources Online, a pan-Asia media & events brand that is passionate about the progression of HR, this online course aims to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to:

  • Get employee mental health and wellness on your organization’s business agenda;
  • Achieve buy-in for investment into employee mental healthcare and wellness;
  • Spot concerns and take action to support employees; and
  • Implement sustainable mental wellness initiatives in the company.

  • Help break down the stigma around mental health in the workplace and make employee mental wellbeing a core business priority in your company
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of mental health issues in the workplace
  • Develop skills and strategies to support a distressed employee
