According to a study released on July 8, nearly 60% of businesses are offering some type of mental health support to employees.1 And it’s no surprise why; the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has turned most employees’ worlds upside down. According to Harvard Business Review, as of May 1, “75% of people say they feel more socially isolated, 67% of people report higher stress, 57% are feeling greater anxiety, and 53% say they feel more emotionally exhausted” since the pandemic began.2
There are a wide variety of emotional health resources and well-being applications that are available to employees. However, some of these resources do not connect employees to the care they need. Quest Diagnostics has partnered with virtual care providers to offer behavioral health solutions that get the right people to the right care.
