It is ethically imperative for any company to have a workplace mental health platform to take care of its employees’ mental health. It is also one of the smartest ways for companies to improve their performance sustainably.
Ifeel has designed a workplace mental health platform to provide employees with the necessary tools to take care of their mental health and advise HR managers on the best way to manage psychosocial risk factors regarding their teams’ well-being.
Ifeel‘s business strategy is always preventive, whether the problems have not yet appeared or are already making themselves felt. That is why we speak of three levels of prevention: primary (preventing a problem from appearing), secondary (preventing a problem from worsening), and tertiary (preventing a serious problem from becoming chronic over time).
How does the workplace mental health platform help?
Regardless of the point at which a worker is at within the preventive route mentioned, any member of staff should focus on their psychological well-being and can do so by using the tools that ifeel has at its disposal.
The psychological benefits you gain can be classified in one of the three following areas:
1. First steps in self-awareness
Through the artificial intelligence tools available in ifeel’s workplace mental health platform, the person interested in personal development can take the first steps in that direction independently and easily.
Therefore, ifeel‘s workplace mental health platform allows the person to keep a record of their behaviors, emotions, and thoughts, access to useful exercises to manage their anxiety, and to consider to what extent the map they have started to draw describes a situation that needs to be addressed in greater detail with a professional.
2. Normalizing one’s own experience
It is one of the most common benefits that can be obtained during any therapeutic or emotional support process, such as those carried out by ifeel‘s team of professional psychologists. It is based on learning that my experience is normal and that anyone in my situation would feel the same as me.
3. Personalized advice
It can be provided through an occasional or sporadic emotional support service. However, it is best – and has its most powerful effects – when carried out through an ongoing therapeutic process.
On the other hand, it should be noted that strengthening employees’ psychological well-being, for example through a support and therapy service such as ifeel’s workplace mental health platform, can turn a vicious circle involving the deterioration of mental health and the decline in performance into a beneficial one.
Workplace mental health platform
In the first case, demotivation, stress, anxiety, and the toxicity of interpersonal relationships gradually undermine staff performance, which in turn damages individual self-esteem, weakens team cohesion, and increases the likelihood that those employees who have an opportunity to leave the company will quit improving their situation.
In the second case, when teams work well, social benefits are consistent, stress peaks are compensated with rest periods and workers’ talents are enhanced without exploiting them, a positive working environment is created.
As a result, your staff is well-rested, motivated, and committed to putting their resources at the service of the task at hand, which will again contribute to their personal well-being experience.
