One of headversity’s proud partners, ATB Financial, has sponsored a CEO roundtable discussion on workforce mental health.

Sure to be one of the premiere events at Upstream, the ATB CEO Round Table will put an esteemed panel of CEOs on display to cover topics wide-ranging around mental health, demonstrating how leadership from the top is now vital to running a successful mental health program. By normalizing the discussion of mental health at the CEO level, we can begin to break down the barriers that prevent employees from seeking help.

Why you don’t want to miss this discussion 

One of the most important, yet often neglected, aspects of running a modern company is the mental health and wellbeing of employees. No longer simply shrugged off to be run by an HR department, mental health begins at the leadership level. Leaders now understand that their own vulnerability and honesty around mental health makes it much easier to share at the employee level, helping to eradicate stigma in an organization.

It is up to leaders and industry change-makers to set the precedent for wellbeing at work within their organizations. The future of work lives upstream and, as such, it’s essential that those in positions of influence nurture their employees’ sense of wellbeing to ensure a thriving, healthy workforce.

But what are some of the specific things that these CEOs have done to promote mental health in their organizations? And, how have they seen mental health affecting their business?

This CEO round table will touch on these key topics and more…
