Many people are experiencing extra worry and stress at this current time. The added pressures of working from home in isolation from colleagues and peers, is likely to have a long-lasting effect on their mental health and wellbeing.
Encouraging your employees to actively look after their mental health can give them a sense of control and purpose. It will also help them cope with the current situation and give them the perspective to understand that this is a temporary situation which will pass. Attending to our mental health now has the potential to provide resilience and skills to help in the future too.
