Supporting the Journey

Supporting Employees Through Their
Mental Health Journey

This is how we reach the full potential of our greatest asset: people.

What if we could discuss mental health in the workplace as easily as we discuss getting the flu?

Supporting employees when they struggle physically, emotionally, and mentally is key to allowing us to reach the full potential of our greatest asset: people. When our people aren’t able to talk to us about issues that keep them from having a productive mindset, then it becomes almost impossible for them to focus on their performance.

Opening up the conversation about mental health is tremendously important, however you do it. Just ask Terence Andre, TiER1’s Chief Scientist. In this Q&A with our CEO Greg Harmeyer, the two discuss Terence’s journey to share his struggles with TiER1 and how being open as a leader and receiving support from other leaders had a tremendously positive impact on Terence and TiER1.
