Summary

This book has been put together by experts in the field of mental health, and associated fields, whom have been carefully chosen to share their insights on a specific knowledge area with you. A golden thread that runs through all these chapters is that each and every contributor is passionate about what they do, and in so doing passionate in sharing their knowledge and experience with you in their unique way. There is much to be done in the field of mental health as yet.

Improving Mental Health in the Workplace consists of 3 parts:

Part 1: Mental health in the workplace: Understanding the current context and what has given rise to this increasing concern
Part 2: Mental health is not an island: Wellbeing is holistic and has multiple dimensions
Part 3: Coping mechanisms: Towards a way forward with mental health

We cannot ignore the fact the context of the pandemic has changed our lives as we once knew it to be. The book starts off with a positioning of the current context and why a spotlight has been placed on mental health. Part 1 focuses largely on how the workplace has responded to the mental health pandemic, what trends we are seeing now and what we can expect to see post pandemic, and some of the major contributors to mental health concerns in the workplace. Included are the common manifestations of mental illnesses which is only one component of the mental health topic as positioned in this book.

    Based primarily on interviews and evaluations of existing practices and policies, this audiobook emphasizes why companies must have social media policies and why they are important in governing employee behavior.Good companies pay attention to the social networking sites their customers and employees inhabit. They watch behaviors, they listen to concerns, they apologize when their companies make mistakes, they are transparent and honest, and they engage their audiences and employees to foster growth, increase brand awareness, and tap their collective knowledge to improve their bottom lines.Anyone who manages employees who access social media from the palms of their hands or from their workspaces or even at home must stay abreast of the constantly shifting ways social media does all of this while helping employees maintain productivity and avoid damaging reputations. In addition, managers must help employees be mindful of corporate values while safeguarding corporate data.This audiobook will help business leaders, HR professionals, and people managers guide employees in their usage of such sites while balancing productivity and help HR set policies that do both.

    When the news broke in 1975 that New York City was on the brink of fiscal collapse, few believed it was possible: how could the capital of the financial world go bankrupt? And yet the city was billions of dollars-maybe twelve, maybe fourteen, no one even really knew how much-in the red. Bankers and politicians alike seized upon the situation as evidence that social liberalism, which New York famously exemplified, was doomed to failure-and promised apocalyptic scenarios if the city didn't fire thousands of workers, freeze wages, and slash social services.In this vivid, gripping account, historian Kim Phillips-Fein tells the remarkable story of the crisis that engulfed the city, forever transforming the largest metropolis in the United States and reshaping ideas about government throughout the country. In doing so, she brings to life a radically different New York, the legendarily decrepit city of the 1970s. Drawing on never-before-used archival sources as well as interviews with key players in the crisis, Phillips-Fein guides us through the hairpin turns and sudden reversals that brought New York City to the edge of bankruptcy-and kept it from going over.
