As we wrap up our series on mental health and work today, we turn to the effects of leadership and well-being.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work states: “Leadership is one of the key determinants of employee well-being, and is fundamental to promoting and sustaining a safe and healthy workplace.”
And yet surveys show that a relatively high percentage of employees are increasingly dissatisfied and disengaged and that they desire to leave their jobs.
