The building and remodeling industry has long avoided focusing on the mental health of its workforce. Often swept under the rug, there is a staggering number of suicide rates within our ranks, and thankfully it’s becoming a broader cultural priority to address it. With pandemic related challenges like historic supply chain shortages, record inflation, and a lack of qualified employees, it’s time to address the mental health needs of our rapidly changing industry. Luckily, we have Steve Barkhouse returning to the show to share how his company has led the charge to address the mental health needs of his team – and how it affected their productivity, profit, and culture. We hope to encourage you to address the topic of mental health with your team after hearing the benefits that Steve experienced.
