It's no secret that the workplace can be a stressful environment. With deadlines to meet, projects to complete, and meetings to attend, it's easy to feel like you're constantly running on empty. And while a little bit of stress can be motivating, too much of it can lead to burnout.
Clootrack believes that mental health and human performance are two sides of the same coin. They are what allow humans to thrive when they work together.
That's why it's important to have a healthy relationship with your work. And part of that involves being open about your mental health. After all, your mental health is just as important as your physical health. So if you're feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope, don't be afraid to reach out for help.
Mental Health in the Workplace: The Stigma
Unfortunately, there is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental health in the workplace. For some reason, there's this belief that we should be able to tough it out and push through even when we're struggling. But the truth is, that's not always possible or healthy.
If you're dealing with anxiety, depression, or any other mental health issue, it's important to reach out for help. There are plenty of resources available, including employee assistance programs, therapy, and medication. And while seeking help can be daunting, it's important to remember that you're not alone.
Mental Health at the Workplace: How Clootrack is Extending Help
Clootrack strives hard to create a supportive environment for all its employees. If you're struggling with your mental health, know that you're not alone and that there is help available.
Promotes A Healthy Work-Life Balance
One of the best things Clootrack is doing to promote mental health in the workplace is to encourage a healthy work-life balance. When employees feel like they're constantly working and never have time for themselves, it can lead to burnout and mental health problems.
Bhumitra, Software engineer at Clootrack says, “Majorly while choosing where to work people worry about salaries and bonuses but something that takes a backseat is the work environment and the value of an employee over and above numbers. My experience with the corporate world has been relatively sweeter than several stories I have heard, but even amongst the handful of experiences I carry, Clootrack stands out like none other.”
Clootrack promotes a healthy work-life balance by offering remote work, and flexible work hours, and encourages employees to take vacation days.
Offers Professional Help
Clootrack has tied up with, YourDost, clinical psychologists, for counseling and emotional support. It connects you anonymously with the appropriate expert from a panel of psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, life coaches, and career coaches who understand you and guide you through completely confidential individual sessions.
Kelly Martin, Data Analyst at Clootrack, says “Clootrack makes sure we are always aware of the fact that mental health is an important factor. Having Support from the "YourDost" platform really feels good and safe. Even though we tend to forget to take care of ourselves sometimes, Clootrack and YourDost keep on reminding us about life beyond work hours, and how we should keep a healthy balance. Really grateful for this care and consideration!"
Bhumitra adds, “Unlike normal mental health workshops, Clootrack went ahead to curate an entire array of facilities for all kinds of problems. There is a very strong feeling of being taken care of that I have knowing there is comprehensive insurance, a provider that will take care of our queries, a platform to choose professionals from and to talk through your personal web of thoughts.”
Promotes Open Communication
Open communication is essential for promoting mental health in the workplace. Employees should feel like they can talk to their managers about their mental health without fear of discrimination or retribution.
Clootrack encourages its employees to have open communication by having regular one-on-one meetings, monthly meetings where mental health is discussed openly with the help of a professional, and creating a feedback system where employees can share their concerns without fear of reprisal.
Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace
Mental health is an important topic that should be given more attention in the workplace. If you are struggling with your mental health, know that there are resources and people who can help you through this difficult time. Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health.
