Webinar details:

Today, 3 in 10 Malaysians are suspected to have a mental health condition. Frustration, anxiety, vulnerability, stress, and all of the other costs associated with undiagnosed mental health issues at the workplace are estimated to have cost the Malaysian economy RM14.46bn (per 2018 data, and expected to have increased over the pandemic). Given the lasting impact of the pandemic, and the volatility of the business environment, it is time to normalise being vulnerable, and address this silent yet rampant phenomenon.

This is why Human Resources Online has collaborated with AIA Malaysia to bring you a one-hour webinar dedicated to mental health conversations around eradicating stigma, spotting the signs of burnout, and most importantly, identifying high-impact yet cost-effective corporate wellbeing programmes.

During this 60-minutes conversation, you can look forward to a panel discussion covering:


Malaysia-wide data on mental health prevalence, claims, and intervention,


How employers can learn to recognise mental stress in employees and what they can do to help,


Relevant targeted interventions to support mental health, and their practical workplace application,


How to boost the effectiveness of existing corporate wellbeing programmes,


Advice for companies looking to improve their mental health awareness, and lots more.

To thank you for attending this session, and showing your commitment to addressing mental health, AIA will be giving away lucky draw prizes! 10 lucky attendees joining us for the entire session will be eligible to win a Touch ‘n Go e-voucher to make your daily commute easier.
