2020 was a difficult year; the most stressful year in history for the global workforce.
The impact of Covid-19 has been stark, not just for those unfortunate enough to catch the virus, but on our mental wellbeing too. This has suffered as we’ve had to deal with changing circumstances at work, financial insecurity and pressures in our personal lives, such as lockdowns and the resulting isolation from loved ones. Instability and uncertainty have taken their toll.
Proprietary data from wellbeing platform 87% shows declining wellbeing scores (indicating deteriorating mental health) across a number of metrics, such as anxiety, fatigue and work stress. All of this is laid out in our Mental Wellbeing Report 2020, which is available here.
The Report includes analysis of the emotional trends throughout the year and the areas that need particular attention. It highlights how different sectors, genders and ages have been affected and shows how a variety of measures are needed to help different people adjust to what is a difficult situation. Importantly, it also includes advice from 87%’s team of psychologists on how businesses can improve the wellbeing of their staff, with steps to build positive mental health in 2021 and beyond.
87% is a digital platform which empowers its users to build positive mental wellbeing. We make this possible with measurable data that makes mental wellbeing tangible and helps businesses and individuals to track progress and make improvements over time, whilst building effective and enduring wellbeing strategies.
