Modern Health Central — The New, Enhanced Employer Hub for Workplace Well-Being

Modern Health Central offers organizations a single, unified platform to elevate how employers understand, cultivate, and scale workplace well-being.

Workplace Mental Health Is an Organizational Effort, Not Just an Individual Issue

The expectations of employers to support workplace mental health and well-being have evolved significantly in recent years. In October 2022, the U.S. Surgeon General released a Workplace Mental Health Framework, intended to be a national call to action for employers to prioritize employee well-being. The focus on workplace mental health has never been clearer, but not all employers are equipped to navigate this emerging landscape. 

HR, benefits teams, and managers are often responsible for implementing organizational mental health efforts. These groups are expected to be culture-transformers, first responders to critical incidents, and more — even if they lack expertise, insights, and resources in these areas. Key responsibilities include: 

  • Stressful event response: Employers are called upon to be first responders and quickly support their teams during stressful events — ranging from internal changes like RIFs to natural disasters. 
  • Manager enablement: HR teams rely on managers to extend meaningful support for employee well-being but may lack the ability to provide training or quick access to resources that empower them.
  • Inclusive well-being culture: Employers are expected to proactively embed well-being into company culture and foster inclusive spaces and resources for employees across communities and identities, but Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is often under-resourced or siloed from mental health.  

Introducing Modern Health Central — A Unified Platform To Scale Workplace Well-Being

At Modern Health, part of our mission is to help employers boldly and positively integrate mental health into workplace culture. To best support these efforts, we’ve evolved our Insights Hub into a next-gen platform for employers — Modern Health Central. Modern Health Central is a single, unified platform available to all Modern Health customers, designed to empower and enable people teams, ERG leads, managers, and more with key resources to support their teams. It includes all the capabilities of our Insights Hub and Client Resource Portal, plus new enhancements.

  • On-demand insights reporting: Real-time access to metrics on organizational well-being, areas of need, and utilization of care options, which can be segmented by department or office location. All data is aggregated and anonymized to optimize member privacy protection.
  • Resource library templates & guides: Intelligent search, categorization, and navigation across clinician-developed guides, communication templates, and resources for admins, managers, and employees. Client resources cover key areas for support like Crisis and Stressful Events, Professional Health, and DEIB.
  • Admin permissioning and tools: Granular permissioning that allows admins to grant leaders and people teams appropriate access to resources, as well as advanced admin capabilities like benefits linking.

Key Benefits to Employers

Modern Health Central helps employers empower HR business partners (HRBPs), Employee Resource Group (ERG) leads, managers, and other key leaders with resources to scale employee well-being and meet evolving expectations. 

  • Scaled access and empowerment: Modern Health Central admin permissioning allows admins to grant extended groups, like HRBPs, ERG leads, and managers, direct access to communication templates, guides, and resources.  
  • Stressful event response: Modern Health Central  includes a suite of outreach templates and frameworks to help HR teams and managers extend swift, decisive, and empathetic support in response to difficult internal or external events (ranging from RIFs to natural disasters).
  • Tools to promote inclusive culture: Modern Health Central now enables admins to grant DEIB and ERG leads direct access to tools needed to foster inclusive spaces that support employee belonging, including resources for employees across identities and communities.
