Equiscript was recognized by Working Well for meeting best practice standards in supporting emotional and mental wellbeing at the workplace. To receive this recognition, Equiscript provides employees and their families with access to counseling, resources, and programs that support a positive work-life balance and education and awareness campaigns to promote optimal emotional and mental wellbeing. These are among several evidence-based strategies for supporting and promoting emotional and mental wellbeing at the workplace.
Working Well helps employers develop a strategic plan to impact employee health by focusing on policy, systems, and environmental changes, which are often low or no cost. Working Well aims to help employers create a sustainable culture of wellbeing by using effective, evidence-based best practices to create healthy worksites.
Research demonstrates that employees performing at optimal health can have a major impact on an employer’s bottom line by contributing to lower health care costs, less absenteeism, higher productivity, and improved morale. Healthy employees perform better and are more productive and more engaged than their unhealthy peers.
“Equiscript is leading the way with a work culture that supports its employees in achieving optimal emotional and mental health,” comments Jen Wright, Working Well Program Director. “Stress can lead to long-term health problems and lengthy absences from the workplace. Equiscript has taken a proactive step in addressing these issues by creating a supportive work environment and ensuring employees have the resources to maintain and achieve optimal emotional and mental wellbeing.”
