Summary

Yet as social media has grown more popular, so too has an awareness of the negative effect it can have on users’ mental health, with a recent YouGov survey showing 57 percent of young people in the UK thinking social media creates “overwhelming pressure” to succeed.Not here exactly, but on our new hardware site Plugged.This hasn’t happened in isolation, either. A recent Aon report found ‘better awareness of mental health issues’ ranked as one of the top concerns for employees, eclipsed only by expectations around flexible and agile working.This shift in priorities has led employers to adapt their attitudes to the working day, which in turn has seen increasing numbers of people working alone or in a de-centralized way. However, whether or not they can make a positive impact on well-being in the workplace is inevitably down to their use sitting within a clear strategy like that set out by the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Mental Health. Until we see more business leaders put mental health at the forefront of their thinking, the potential of these collaborative and social platforms will remain a relative unknown, and what a missed opportunity that would be.
