The state of healthcare in this nation has been a hot button issue for decades. Not a month goes by that our Leadership Reviews highlight the critical nature of healthcare for our employees. Healthcare is the second largest expense for a team behind salary so it’s no wonder that corporate culture will do anything to drive down these costs. I don’t believe in lobbyists. I don’t believe that the government will be able to get anything done.
How do you know if you need a mental health day?
It was six months to the date that I had returned from maternity leave. What a whirlwind. The growth of my first child was outpacing my business. This was my thought as I looked out the window of our new office. Our team was growing. We were adding more buildings. New teams. New life. As I watched the sunrise on that January day I had an unabating urge to run back home. I didn’t want to go to my meetings. I was booked in back to back one on ones, usually my favorite day, but I just wasn’t feeling ready. What was going on? This is when I knew I needed a mental health day.
