Survey: COVID-19 pandemic has caused depression in 29% of workers

Editor's Note

In a Gartner survey of more than 5,000 employees, 29% said they were depressed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly half (49%) of respondents sought help through their companies mental health and well-being programs.

The survey also found that 64% of employers have implemented new well-being benefits, and 34% expanded access to existing offerings. However, only a quarter of organizations said they plan to maintain the programs for the foreseeable future.
