Publicis Sapient: Building A Culture Of Mental Well-Being 

On average, people spend 90,000 hours at work in their lifetimes. Studies equate this number to one-third of their lives. So to say that professionals must learn to keep their work and private lives separate just implies how much we undermine the effect the workplace environment has on a person’s well-being, particularly mental health.

In 2021, Human Edge embarked on a journey to build a mental health inclusive workplace at Publicis Sapient India, by nurturing its leaders to become Mental Wellbeing ambassadors. Through the course of 7 months, Edge Experts equipped participants with the necessary skills to address mental health and emotional wellness challenges of their team members.
