According to recent estimates (Greenberg, 2015), depression costs the US approximately 210 Billion annually. What is it costing your company? How do you know? What percentage of your people utilize your EAP? Do you have an EAP? And is your EAP good? Again, how do you know? When you add the costs of addiction to depression in the workplace, the parasitic losses to productivity and opportunity become near cataclysmic for certain companies. How is the mental health of your employees shaped by you, consciously or not? What is their responsibility? And yours? When is a lapse of performance or absenteeism a personnel issue? When is Mr. Machiavelli (uncomfortable cough, “Narcissist”) in the boardroom really just exhibiting mental health flags? What if this toxic individual is actually a high performer? Is there such a thing as healthy narcissism and if so, how do we manage it successfully? How do you weigh productivity with corporate citizenship that affects the whole?
