Young professionals have grown up in a world that has been characterised by constant change and uncertainty, particularly due to the Covid 19 pandemic. As such, they face increasing psychosocial risks at work owing to concerns about finances, job security, and failing to meet their career goals. 

The increasing demands on human capital in an interconnected and hyper-competitive world are largely reflected in the expectations that have been placed on students and young professionals today. In the drive to succeed within this environment, some young professionals are at risk of compromising their mental health and wellness to demonstrate their dedication to the organisations they work for.


Listen on the go

In the fifth episode of Investec Life’s Reimagine Mental Health podcast series, we unpack how young professionals are managing their mental health and work to succeed. We are joined by Sicelo Joja, Executive Assistant to Chief Executive Officer of Investec Private Bank, Dr Tshepile Tlali, interim Chairperson of the Junior Doctors Association of South Africa and the interim vice-Chairperson of the South African Registrars Association and Chantelle Oosthuizen is the Executive Director for Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET).
