According to the latest research from the Harvard Business Review, 82% of executives say workplace stress is a problem at their organization. But the good news is, employers aren’t powerless–they have the ability to equip their employees with tools and programs that can help reduce stress and support mental wellness. 

Because mental health is the foundation of your workforce’s ability to be engaged, productive, and creative, forward-thinking organizations like Zendesk aren’t just making mental health a priority— they’re reinventing the way work gets done to support mental health.
