This article in Forbes has been written by Emma Codd who is a global inclusion leader. She talks of how mental health has become an important issue in the business world. This is because several times there has been a problem of people not being able to perform perfectly due to their mental health issues which are generally stress and depression. Due to these issues therefore the business world is adversely being affected since a depressed person cannot be productive. She gives different reasons for the causes of depressions which include; lack of support in the workplace; deadlines to meet which are strict, very difficult projects to work on, very high expectations, lack of control, lack of proper development when one is a child, being unable to open up or express oneself, long term career and financial outlooks, family welfare among other reasons.
The reason for this post is that it is a perfect post for horizon scanning since it has been written very recently in 30th March 2021. It focuses on the future of the business world and how it can be affected by mental health issues among the employees.
