    National, June 07th 2022: As the Great Resignation continues to disrupt the global economy, Pearson, the world's leading learning company, today released its new public opinion research, showing that people around the world are prioritizing mental health and wellbeing when considering where to work.

     

    The survey was conducted by Morning Consult in April 2022, among a total sample of 5,008 respondents between the ages of 16 to 70 years old in the United States, United Kingdom, Brazil, India, and China. With respect to India, findings show that Indians are seeking more empathy & understanding from their employers & want mental wellness to be a priority at workplaces. In fact, a recent study by World Economic Forum notes that conversations around mental health in India are gradually opening up and as the country starts thinking about the impact of education and access on this scenario, the Pearson Global Learner Survey (GLS) 2022 further puts a spotlight on this matter.

     

    55% of Indians want their employers to do more to address mental health and well-being by-

     

    · Providing free mental health services (72%)

        · Offering a set amount of paid mental health days off from work (59%)

        ·Sharing mental health resources with employees and expanding Employee Assistance Programme     (EAP) to improve mental health (68%)

            ·40% of the general population and 47% of parents said that the use of technology has very positively         impacted their professional network.

    As stated by the company, “Work is where many of us spend much of our time. Employees are demanding more attention from employers to address the impact of the mental health crisis that has been exacerbated over the last two and a half years. As we emerge from the pandemic, and we get accustomed to new ways of working, organizations will need to be strategic and innovative in incorporating wellness and wellbeing into their offerings to stay competitive and serve their workforces."
