two construction workers thinking about their mental wellbeing

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in mental health claims for employers. Even so, getting workers to acknowledge they’re having a problem and seek help is a major challenge many companies are trying to tackle, both because they want employees to get the care they need and because they’re concerned about retaining their workers. Even those in fields like construction, where tough workers aren’t often inclined to talk about mental health problems, are seeing the benefits of more open discussion.
