SM Supermalls and Mind You team up for mental health awareness in the workplace
SM Supermalls, one of the largest mall developers and operators in Southeast Asia, has recently joined hands with Mind You, a mental-health technology company, to boost its mental health and wellness programs for its employees amid the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“There is a duality to the benefits of SM’s partnership with Mind You as employees can finally access unlimited mental healthcare without the barriers of stigma or financial cost, while SM will improve workforce productivity,” said Cheryll Ruth Agsaoay, SM Supermalls Vice President for Human Resources.
With this partnership, SM Supermalls will be helping its employees deal with stress from personal challenges, the workplace, and isolation. SM employees may now book therapy sessions instantly and anonymously through Mind You’s online platform.
“It will lead the way for employee wellness in the Philippines. The whole team is excited to provide SM employees with access to our world-class online platform,” said Cameron Quin, Mind You Chief Coordinator.
Quin lauded SM Supermalls’ proactive approach to supporting its employees, as many companies cut costs as they grapple with the pandemic. Due to the stigma of mental health, most Filipinos choose not to seek professional help. Studies say that many employees often call in sick because of stress.
Incorporated by Filipino-Australian Entrepreneur Yuri Marshall, Mind You was established to combat mental health crisis resulting from the effects of COVID-19. It offers an innovative online platform designed to assess employee’s stress levels and provides unlimited access to psychological counseling, educational resources, live webinars, and management, and leadership training on mental health.
