Investing in the mental health of your employees leads to improved performance, increased productivity, and overall enhanced wellbeing. There are a variety of workplace psychosocial factors that can have a positive or negative influence on the mental fitness of employees. The Mentally Fit Workplaces series highlights 15 workplace psychosocial factors that, when done right, can significantly improve the wellbeing of your team, hence improving efficiency and capacity.
When not done well, these factors can be a hazard with the potential to cause or exacerbate a mental health problem. Psychosocial hazards can be individual and dynamic, which can make identification of these hazards a little more challenging than physical hazards at work.
Listed below are the workplace psychosocial factors in the form of downloadable PDF infographics for you to use within your organisation. The infographics outline the most common workplace factors that influence mental fitness, how they may show up as a hazard, as well as practical tips for your organisation to consider.
