How Leaders Can Be More Effective Regarding Mental Health in the Workplace with Bernie Dyme

Mental Health in the Workplace with Roxanne Derhodge and Bernie Dyme

Mental Health Quote: “Leaders are struggling with culture, how to maintain a culture and closeness and some kind of sense of intimacy that’s good for business as well, remotely.” Bernie Dyme

At this point in time, we’re all looking for some return to “normalcy”.  As the pandemic continues, (and it doesn’t seem like there is any end in sight) we continue to struggle through the challenges and are doing our best to keep moving forward.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome EAP expert, Bernie Dyme to share his thoughts about the increase of EAP and mental health services being utilized and helping leaders design a safe and mentally healthy workspace for their teams.

Bernie gave us so much great information that we are splitting this into a two-part series, so be sure to tune in again next week for Part II.

Since co-founding Perspectives Ltd in 1981, President and CEO Bernie Dyme has helped developed an organization committed to delivering the highest-quality workplace resource programs. Bernie continues to create a balanced approach between cost savings and safe, healthy, and productive workforces.
