Men keep it hush hush behind those mo’ (Last Updated On: October 8, 2014)

Did you know that 50% of fathers, brothers, grandfathers and boyfriends are willing to lie to their bosses and colleagues and hide the fact that they are suffering mental illness?

That is half of the men in your workplace right now…

A study by the Movember Foundation has revealed that half of Aussie males do not know the signs and symptoms of depression even through this same figure will experience mental illness in their life time. This month is mental health awareness month and with these new workplace figures Employsure would like to help you to start a conversation, turning the stigma around and highlighting that by talking about life’s highs as well as lows can brighten up a colleagues day.

There is no need for your staff to lie and hide their struggles, if you would like to help your staff and provide a supportive workplace, one where staff can communicate and feel obliged to take time for personal respite and rejuvenation, call Employsure today on 1300 651 415. We can implement personal leave policies into employee contracts and procedures such as return to work interviews to ensure that your staff are able to talk about their illnesses in confidence and ensure that they are healthy and fit to return to work.
