Employee Burnout & Mental Health: Unique Impacts on Women in the New Workplace
September 20, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
According to McKinsey’s Center for Societal Benefit Through Healthcare, the pandemic has disproportionately impacted the mental health of three important employee groups: mothers, senior-level women, and Black women. Burnout remains a significant challenge for employees and employers alike, and shows up differently by population and age group.
The Massachusetts High Technology Council’s Women in Leadership Initiative (WIL) will explore these challenges and practical strategies employers are pursuing to foster well-being in the workplace, with support from 2022 WIL Sponsor PTC and Knowledge Partner McKinsey & Company.
Following a context-setting presentation featuring recent findings from the McKinsey Health Institute, McKinsey’s Kana Enomoto will moderate an important discussion with Jo Ayoub of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Jenna Smith of PTC, and Louisa Sylvia, Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, regarding the impacts of the pandemic on mental health and employee well-being in the workplace—focusing on the unique challenges women face as they navigate this new landscape—and the importance of employers taking a systemic approach to address these issues.
The program will examine:
- Leading signs, stressors, and impacts of burnout for women in the workplace
- Effective and equitable strategies company culture leaders are employing to productively redesign hybrid workforces and recreate a sense of belonging for their employees
- Shift in mindset needed to adopt flexible and actionable policies in a post-pandemic environment
