Mental Wellbeing in the Startup Workplace

Tuesday, May 25 2021 at 5:00pm - 6:00pm

Beyond recruiting and retention, poor mental health in the workplace is costing employers in the US an estimated $300 billion annually related to rising healthcare costs, absenteeism, lost productivity and turnover. The pandemic has heightened isolation and burnout. How do we tackle this mental health crisis in the workplace?

Join Purpose Jobs for a virtual panel discussion on mental wellbeing in startups and the tech industry.

We’ll be asking our panel of experts these questions (and your questions, too). Register for access to this discussion on Zoom.
