One Mind At Work
The Future of Workplace Mental Health
Given that most of the world’s population spends one-third of their adult lives at work, employers have a tremendous opportunity to improve quality of life for all people and play a critical role in driving mental health solutions. Moreover, leaving mental health needs unaddressed has costly results like higher absenteeism, increased liability, and lost productivity. We believe that a committed group of CEOs can transform the way we view and approach mental health, brain fitness, and wellbeing in the workplace.
Launched in 2017, One Mind At Work convenes leaders to transform approaches to brain health with the goal of addressing mental health disparities and working towards a society and health care system that acknowledge that there is no health without mental health. With financial support from founding sponsor Janssen Research & Development, LLC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, One Mind At Work now has more than 60 global employers in diverse sectors including business, medicine, research, education, law enforcement, military, and civil society.
Investing resources in workplace mental health as an element of comprehensive employee wellbeing will:
- Increase retention, recruitment, and productivity
- Lower absenteeism, presenteeism, and disability
- Enhance the reputation of your organization
- Reduce employee-related risks and potential liabilities
- Reduce total medical costs
