Prioritizing Mental Health: Box's approach to supporting mental health in the workspace

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to shed light on the importance of mental well-being. At Box, we understand that taking care of our employees' mental health is crucial for their overall happiness and productivity. That's why we offer two incredible resources - Modern Health, generous time off programs, fresh air days, and leave of absences - to support our team members in their journey towards better mental health.

Modern Health provides comprehensive mental wellness solutions tailored specifically for individuals' unique needs. With access to licensed therapists, coaches, self-guided programs, circles, meditation, and more, it empowers our employees with the tools they need to navigate life's challenges effectively. Whether it be managing stress or improving relationships at work or home, Modern Health offers personalized guidance every step of the way.

But don't just take our word for it; Lucy Tran, from our recruiting team, had this to say: "Modern Health has been an absolute game-changer for me! The ability to connect with experienced professionals who genuinely care about my well-being has made all the difference in managing my anxiety levels during high-pressure situations."

In addition to Modern Health, another unique benefit is our Fresh Air Fridays or Mental Health breaks - global, company-wide days off to help Boxers avoid burnout, refresh, recharge, and to thank them for all their hard work. We know scaling the impact of days off is important to 10x-ing their efficiency as Boxers are more likely to rest and recharge when the entire company is off. That’s why these days are provided in ADDITION to paid time off and holidays at a country level and our flexible “time off when you need it” vacation policy.

As May marks Mental Health Awareness Month, it serves as a reminder that prioritizing one's emotional well-being should always be the top priority regardless of where one stands in their career or personal life!
