New Research Unpacks the Demand for Flexibility & Mental Health Support


Tuesday, August 1st, 2023

goBeyondProfit’s 2023 Business Generosity Report confirms that generosity remains a driving factor behind employees’ choice of workplace. If you’re wondering how to prioritize limited funds, employed adults provide clear direction. For the second year in a row, employees want to see greater flexibility and mental health support for employers.

Flexibility Isn’t a Fight About Returning to the Office: For most, flexibility is defined as the ability to balance work and life demands as they arise without having to take PTO. 

Mental Health Support Remains Top Priority. Last year, the goBeyondProfit report signaled a red flag about the state of mental health in the workplace. Yet, a year later, only 41% of executives state they currently offer mental health support, even though a full 88% of employees continue to name mental health support as a top demonstration of generosity.
