In his Glassdoor article, “Starting at the Top: 5 Ways Managers Can Support Employee Mental Health,” CHG senior vice president Kevin Ricklefs shares the different ways managers can create safe, open environments and help employees perform at their best.
“Understanding how a business can best support its employees’ mental health has evolved drastically in the past decades.
