Temima Shames has the solution to help you achieve a culture that prioritizes mental health and well-being, and we dig right into that (as well as some other rad topics) in this episode!

Go grab your coffee or your tea, and let’s talk it out. 

Establishing a work culture that promotes both personal and professional growth, as well as mental health, is crucial in today’s fast-paced business world. A strong work culture allows employees to feel supported, motivated and engaged in the company’s mission. Providing an environment where employees can thrive leads to better performance, higher levels of creativity, and overall job satisfaction. It is essential for leaders to communicate expectations, offer opportunities for growth, and provide resources and support for mental health. Temima Shames discussed the value of prioritizing mental health and growth within her own company, Next Step Talent. She believes in creating a work environment where employees feel comfortable discussing their mental health and seeking assistance when needed. As a result, her company sends out regular anonymous mental health check-ins to clients to monitor their well-being. By prioritizing these aspects of her employees’ lives, Temima is actively contributing to a healthy work culture that facilitates the success of both her employees and her company as a whole.
