"We also want to say to resign and quit, want to leave, but the heart has the parents and family, worried about resigning after nothing - not to find a job, will not be confused" stay in the workplace for many years, 30 and 40 generations more pressure is: hate work, but I do not know what I want. Do we have a way to solve the confusion by leading our work?
Thirty- or forty-year-olds, there is always an anxious in the workplace that can't be eliminated.
It's like asking your boss to raise his salary, but it's never been for a while; there's no way to stand things happening again, it's no use communicating with your boss's co-workers, you can deal with the same thing every day, but I feel scared to work like this to the age of 50, and there's no way to change jobs.
Society looks at us in our thirties and forties as if we were doing well, but they can't see our inner dazed. We also imagine the younger generation of people to resign to resign, want to go away, but the heart has the parents and family, there is fear of resignation after nothing timid, gradually, these worries become psychological pressure. Between parents and partners and children, we in our 30s and 40s are the sandwich generation.
If you're not someone who finds a job, you won't be confused. How do we let life stop being controlled by the workplace and let ourselves dominate the workplace instead? Thirty generations of workplace psychological pressure, can be alleviated? Interview with Chen Huizhu, senior vice president and head of human resources at HSBC, to find out how she views neglected mental health in the workplace and how she can become the leader in her career direction.
We value job performance and personal empowerment, so why not mental health?
According to the WHO's "Mental Health in the Workplace" report, released in May, it says that 264 million people worldwide are estimated to be suffering from depression, most of them with anxiety. The neglected mental health of employees is costing employees nearly $1 trillion a year in productivity.
"What we're facing now is an information explosion and a more complex world, and we've also found that the needs of our peers have shifted from gender and age differences to mental health," said Chen Huizhu, senior vice president and head of human resources at HSBC's Commercial Bank in Taiwan. As the situation is becoming more and more different, we should assist our colleagues in their mental health needs through a variety of programmes. 」
Personal ability, job performance, etc., these external needs are easier to see, be satisfied, but psychological needs? Chen Huizhu proposed a common phenomenon in the workplace: "But often in mental health matters, he may not want to say, or he does not know, embarrassed to say." 」
Mental health problems can come from work-sized things, and anxiety and depression unknowingly affect our behavior. For example, workplace emotional blackmail, a lot of work, but the supervisor with performance to threaten you, make you feel like you have no choice, or in a demeaning way to stimulate you: you do not perform well because you are not hard enough to put in.
When we become "highly stressed at work", we are often easily overlooked as incompetent, personal problems, and sometimes your emotions can be affected by small things, which in turn becomes a kind of stress.
We want to say that the pressure you feel is not right, let alone taken for granted. Psychological stress in the workplace needs to be taken seriously, if the current workplace makes it difficult for you to speak out, encourage you to find a friend next to you to share, or find a counselor, do not be bored in your heart.

There's a pressure from "I don't know who I am."
There's a more pressure in generations 30 and 40: I don't know what I want.
Confusion may seem like twenty generations of power, but even if you enter the workplace and work for more than a decade, in addition to resigning around the world to "change your life", you will still be afraid that you have only two options: to stay in the same position, or to continue to rise. Even if you have more money and can support your family, reality can make you lose the motivation to take control of your life.
That's why it's so important to lead your job.
"At HSBC Group, we encourage our colleagues to express their views more actively or lead their career development, which is also a generational trend," Mr Chan added. 」
"Back in Taiwan, we've been emphasizing this (leading role). Perhaps because of national character, just like in the university, if the professor asked if there are any questions, we are embarrassed to ask questions, may be after class will rush to ask the teacher. So we've been promoting a "Speak up" culture, and seeing things that aren't right or can do better, we've been brave enough to express it. Even if education and training, we do not directly from the company's point of view to request the direction of learning, but to provide different learning resources in our work environment or website, so that everyone can always be tailored to their needs to learn and develop. 」
"What's your preference?" What are your career goals? What are your interests? We have all kinds of dishes, not we bring you, but you choose the desired dish. 」
Leading the job is to help you stay motivated, and you know what you want and what you don't want. When people around you laugh at low pay and no future, but you love the job and know how to measure the value of a job. Leading the work is more a process of finding out who he is, and in the past it was the supervisor who saw your strengths and judgewhat what tasks you were suited to, and you were passively promoted. Now you're trying to tap your strengths and preferences through every mission, and then take the initiative to fight your boss for opportunities.
Leading the way, despite the bad real life, your willpower will not fade away over time, you feel not lost, but feel that "life has many choices."

The more active you are, the more you can create the life you want.
When it comes to diversity and inclusion, HSBC is not just focusing on gender, race and age on top of the iceberg, but also about its personal potential and psychological problems under the iceberg, in short, "Who am I?" What do I want? 」
"I have always felt that the issue of pluralism and inclusion is not just about gender, " said Zhang Chunru, senior vice president of corporate communications at HSBC Commercial Bank in Taiwan. 」
"It's a really inclusive culture that everyone can have their own way of working, and I have a feeling that different ideas and ways of working, people are fast, some people are slow, and they can embrace different ideas and ways of working," she added. 」
Leading work is also a leading life, imagine that ten years later, twenty years later, even if you are still in the same position, or promotion, resignation, change runway, is also good, because willpower, more clearly the job can create value for themselves.
The more active you are, the more you create work experience and ability, but also a pursuit of the ideal life.
