A study conducted by Southern Cross University determined that some 62% of employees say mental health therapy is very/moderately effective in helping them achieve their career goals.

The study sought to discover the investments that professionals make to further their careers, surveying 1,007 full-time workers in Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. The findings illustrate which career expenses are most common and which seem to be most worthwhile.

The survey determined that university courses were the most effective investment for reaching career goals, with 67.4% citing these studies. The poll showed that in the past two years, 50% of professionals had actually taken online courses, with a further 26.3% saying they had taken university courses.

The most cited actions carried out by respondents in order to invest in their careers, however, were also the most superficial, with 62% citing a haircut and 54% stating the purchase of work clothes.

As far as the most effective investment for reaching career goals, mental health therapy was second on the list following continuing education.

Another significant finding in the study was that career coaching was found, at 61%, to most likely lead to a promotion. That was closely followed by professional mentorship (58.5%) and lessons/tutoring (53.5%) as the next best ways to earn a promotion.

Even though career coaching was so highly regarded, the study showed that only 6% of entry-level employees had invested in it over the past two years.

The study was conducted in February, a short time before the coronavirus pandemic began to fracture the world economy and left millions jobless.
