The massive hit of pandemic and societal shifts underway help evolve company cultures and employers’ perceptions about workforce mental wellbeing. Focussed programs are being carved by companies to support their employees and motivate them to become more participating in wellness programs.

Business leaders have started to invest in employees’ wellness. On the other side, employees have also rightfully increased expectations for their wellbeing. 

But, the majority of employees lack the confidence to ask for mental wellbeing programs at work. They still don’t feel like it’s safe to open up to their workplace and share their cause of stress, ailment, and anxiety. 

How should employers overcome such challenges and create an impact by making employees emotionally immune?

To understand the “Impact of building emotional immunity for employees,” Team Fitgenix reached out to Mr. Fayyaz Ahmed from Pakistan. 

Mr. Fayyaz is a Clinical Psychologist and a Ph.D. Scholar from NIP, Quaid e Azam University, Islamabad. He is presently holding the post of Director in a very reputed organization, the Institute of Mental Health (IOMH) in Islamabad. 


The future of employees’ mental well-being appears to be restructured with more compassion, support, and empathy. This will eventually add sustainable ways of working and help create a positive work culture.

A big thank you to Mr. Fayaaz from Team Fitgenix for taking out time to share such insightful talk. I hope there are some key learnings that all of us can take back from here.
