Navigating COVID-19: Impact on Mental Health | SHRM

Leadership & Culture

According to new research by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), between 22 percent and 35 percent of U.S. employees often experience symptoms of depression as they live through the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, 35 percent of the 1,099 employees surveyed report “feeling tired or having little energy, often” with Gen Z more likely than others to report this. To a lesser (22 to 23 percent), employees report feeling bad about themselves and letting themselves and their families down, feeling hopeless, having little pleasure in doing things, and having trouble concentrating on tasks (with women more likely than men to report trouble concentrating). The deck provides a summary of all of the results which contains several insights that can be leveraged as we support our organizations and workers during this time.
