Mental Health Awareness & COVID‑19 Training
Supporting employees’ mental health is not only good for your workforce, it’s good for business. COVID-19 has created dramatic disruptions in workplaces around the world. The list of adjustments and challenges is astounding, from working behind safety barriers and wearing a mask all day, to an endless stream of “zooming” from a temporary home office. These different working conditions mean fewer colleagues to collaborate with while managing distractions, background noise, and multitasking. This barrage of revolving changes contributes measurably to an employee’s anxiety, fatigue and overall mental health. Even employees who have never had any experience with mental anxiety are now reporting heightened stress and fatigue.
It’s not always easy to spot the signs of stress or anxiety among our teammates or colleagues. With remote employees, the challenge of detecting stress is even more difficult. Being proactive in initiating conversations and sharing resources is key to supporting their mental health. And, for supervisors and managers, demonstrating your openness to talk about issues will enable employees to feel comfortable coming to you, in good times and bad. The pandemic has sharpened the need for a well-defined, strategic employee training plan. As the return to the workplace continues, focusing on employee physical and mental health is critical in order to have a more successful reintegration. It is a matter of keeping your employees safe, ensuring the workplace can continue and managing the liability of working in a pandemic world.
