EFFECTIVE SUPERVISION

A key theme throughout the SRA’s report on workplace culture is the integral role supervisors play in shaping mental health culture. Echoing research by Gallup and Deloitte, the SRA report also suggests that subpar supervision not only contributes to a culture of poor mental health, but one that undermines engagement, retention and, ultimately, the profitability and competitiveness of your firm.
