Comments from president, integrated health solutions and executive vice president, LifeWorks, Neil King
“The events of the past two years have accelerated and compounded the factors that lead to burnout. LifeWorks iCBT for employee burnout program is built to specifically address and support employees who are struggling with a sense of mental, and even physical, exhaustion caused by prolonged stress. Left unaddressed, these feelings can negatively impact workplace culture, employee productivity, absenteeism, and the ability to attract and retain top talent. Our program will combat this by bringing accessible, evidence-based, and therapist-guided support to employees in need when they need it.”
