Behavioral Health and Well-Being at Work
Nearly one in five working adults has major behavioral health issues and many more struggle with anxiety, stress, depression, sleep issues and substance usage. COVID-19 and concerns about racism and social injustice have increased the frequency and impact of these behavioral health issues.
Pathways at Work provides behavioral health programs consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations to improve the health and well-being of your employees.
The CDC encourages employers to host programs on stress management, depression, alcohol and substance usage, sleep and fatigue.
The CDC also recommends that employers provide managers with training to improve their ability to recognize and reduce workplace behavioral health issues.
The Effects of Behavioral Health Issues on Employees
- 94% of workers report feeling stress at work, and almost a third describe their stress level as high to unusually high (American Institute of Stress).
- 72% of employees want employers to champion mental health and well-being, but 63% think their workplace is unhelpful (Society for Human Resource Management).
- 25% of workers say that they will burn out in the next 12 months if their stress levels don’t improve (Gallup survey).
- Parents and younger generations report higher levels of stress than Americans overall (Gallup survey).
What’s the Bottom Line for Employers?
As an employer, providing effective behavioral health support can lead to improved employee health and performance. Effective behavioral health programs consistently yield positive ROI and can reduce healthcare costs, turnover, productivity losses, liability, injuries and disability costs.
- 75% of US employers view stress as their No. 1 health and productivity concern (Willis Towers Watson).
- The American Psychological Association estimates 550 million workdays are lost each year due to job stress, with an estimated 1 million workers absent every day due to stress.
- 95% of HR leaders agree burnout is affecting employee retention, and 87% called improved retention a high/critical priority (Kronos and Future Workplace survey).
- 46% of HR leaders surveyed say employee burnout is responsible for up to half of their annual workforce turnover (Kronos and Future Workplace).

Benefits of Behavioral Health Programs in the Workplace
Virtual and face-to-face employee behavioral health programs benefit employers and employees by improving productivity, culture, collaboration and retention. Your entire organization can benefit from behavioral health support.
Providing and promoting behavioral health programs sends a powerful and positive cultural message, reduces the stigma often associated with behavioral health challenges, and increases employee acceptance of support. This reduces healthcare costs and absenteeism while increasing retention.
The majority of employees with behavioral health issues don’t seek help or support. Having access to tools and resources in the workplace can help your employees reduce stress, manage anxiety or depression, and experience improved overall well-being.
Your entire organization can benefit from a more supportive and understanding culture. Communication and collaboration improve when colleagues understand they’re not alone in their anxiety and stress.
