Medix Global and Marsh India have come together to make mental wellness a boardroom priority in 2023 and onwards. This is in an effort to boost corporate productivity and economic long-term growth.

At least   50 per cent of India Inc employees are noted to be stressed in everyday life and nearly 50 per cent of them report work pressure to be the biggest deterrent to their mental health driving burnout known to be associated with anxiety disorders and clinical depression.

Now Medix Global has joined forces with Marsh India to address the pressing issue of Mental Health Challenges in the Workplace. The event will be held at Taj MG Road, Bengaluru, on October 11, 2023, with the participation of CEOs, CHROs, and senior leadership members from over 150 leading corporates across the city.

The initiative aims to shed light on mental health issues and encourage collective action towards a healthier and more supportive work environment in India. Mental health disorders often remain undetected in India as there is a lack of education and awareness concerning emotional and psychological disorders. Most Indian corporates have not yet implemented solutions to address their employees’ mental health needs.

Speakers from the corporate and healthcare sectors are convening to underscore the significance of prioritising mental health in the boardroom.

Prawal Kalita, Managing Director & MMB-Leader India, Marsh India, will deliver the inaugural address, while Dr. Ali Khwaja, Founder and Chairman, Banjara Academy will deliver the keynote speech.

Dr Rajiv Aggarwal, MMB India Leader (Digital Healthcare Strategy & Partnerships), Marsh India will provide practical solutions for companies to prioritise mental wellbeing of their employees.

Other panellists are Shabana Ali Lodha, Total Rewards Leader-Asia, AMD, Sigal Atzmon, President & Chief Executive Officer, Medix Global, Ramakant Vempati, Founder & President, Wysa, Vaibhav Singhal, Director-Global Benefits & APAC Regional Leader, PayPal and Dr. Nimitha Menon, MMB India Leader – Health & Wellness, Marsh India.

The key objective of the event is to bring attention to the significant problem of mental health issues in the workplace. Gather invaluable views from influential professionals and mental health experts, who will graciously impart their wisdom and tell their stories. Take part in open and beneficial conversation by insightful panel talks that analyse multiple elements of workplace mental health. Make mental health a boardroom priority to drive a healthier and thriving workforce.

According to  Atzmon,  "In the dynamic world of corporate leadership, our commitment extends way beyond just profits; it encompasses the profound physical and mental health and well-being of our workforce. We are collaborating with Marsh India on this initiative aimed at paving the way for a workplace that doesn't just enhance productivity but nurtures the holistic wellness of its valued employees, one that measures and delivers improved human and medical outcomes, alongside the financial ones. Let's unite to dismantle the barriers around mental health and equip our workforce with the support they deserve to thrive."

This is one of the first steps towards bringing about a cultural change through thought leadership and open dialogues with leading wellness experts and corporates, she added.
