Gen Z wants to talk about mental health. In a 2023 survey of nearly 3,000 people, Gen Z was almost twice as likely as other generations to say they struggled with their mental health. Related storiesA healthy work environment is one where people feel supported and encouraged to do meaningful work — not one that fixates on their mental health. What does have a tangible impact on people's well-being at work is whether they find their work meaningful. Instead, employers should ensure their staff have access to mental-health care while building a positive culture that promotes meaningful work.

Then, I became the head of recruiting at DoorDash and later the chief people officer at Carta, a pre-IPO equity management company for startups. My first experience with PIPs was at DoorDashDoorDash was the first place I encountered performance improvement plans or PIPs. When I joined as the head of talent in March 2015, I was the company's 50th employee. To be candid, I've never seen somebody survive a PIP. I've never heard of somebody who went on a PIP and became a top performer at that company.
