An Erosion of Spiritual Wellness and The Mental Health Cost for Millions of Professionals and Their Families

As more employees are impacted by the weight of the global pandemic, mental health at work is becoming a concern for small and large employers alike. Trust at work is essential for employees to feel psychologically safe at work.

Lack of trust erodes employees’ confidence, promotes fear, and increases stress and anxiety. Trust among colleagues, among team members, leadership, and in the security of the organization are some key factors employees express as core issues they face at work.

No one should have to worry that their job security is less important than the shareholders’ earnings. Too often we hear of companies reporting high earnings only to note that they are also laying off staff to shore up the bottom line.

No one should lose their job or be laid off while the executives in their corporation take home huge bonuses. Trust at work is essential for high performance. If you want employees to perform at a high level, they must first trust and feel safe at work. I believe that there is a direct correlation between trust and high performance.

We must understand that trust-building takes time and effort. It takes work for leaders, and employees alike to take steps to improve trust at work. The key to building trust at work is by promoting integrity as a competency. The challenge here is that integrity is a by-product of spiritual wellness. Spiritual wellness encompasses all those invisible aspects of our lives, such as self-esteem, faith, purpose, balance, personal style, and core values. For too long we have ignored this part of our humanity and now it appears to be a deficit in our overall well-being.

building. Showing up to work with a spiritual wellness deficit will mean your team members or those you lead will be unable to trust you.
