Business owners are looking out for the wellbeing of their staff, but who’s looking out for theirs? Employers may have countless resources to plan and create a mentally healthy workplace for their staff, but do they have a plan to protect their own mental health and wellbeing?
The challenges and stressors employers face are real, complicated, and often ongoing. From managing daily operations, paying wages, hiring, and managing staff, ensuring they have the right processes and documents in place, the life of a business owner is often overwhelming, and these challenges can have a tangible impact on their mental health and wellbeing.
Mr Stephen Roebuck, Head of Operations at Employsure; Australia’s Leading Workplace Relations Specialists commented, “At Employsure, we understand the stress and pressure employers are under. In a post pandemic world, we know a lot of business owners are struggling with resilience fatigue. With a recession looming, rising wage costs, chronic labour shortages and rising expenses, there is no doubt business owners are being squeezed from every direction.”
Employsure has leveraged on its expertise and created some guides as well as tailored resources that not only help business owners with managing the mental wellbeing of their staff but that of theirs as well. These guides were created with clients in mind, to help them keep their mental wellbeing in check, so that they can continue to run their business without sacrificing their mental health.
Mr Roebuck concluded with, “Being a business owner in today’s socioeconomic climate is a challenge. Our primary focus in Employsure is to help build better businesses and support our clients so that they don’t have to shoulder the burden. At Employsure, we help take the stress out of navigating tricky workplace and employment relations issues. We support our clients with trustworthy information and solutions to workplace challenges.”
