Returning to Work with Confidence During COVID‑19 Online Training
Employee Mental Health in a Pandemic & Managing Workplace Safety
COVID-19 has created dramatic disruptions in workplaces around the world. In the short time since the WHO (World Health Organization) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, the landscape for health and safety best practices and workplace etiquette has been turned upside down. As the return to work phase starts with employers recalling employees to the office, focusing on employee physical and mental health is critical. It is a matter of keeping your employees safe, ensuring the workplace can continue and managing the liability of working in a pandemic world.
Employees returning to work are sure to be experiencing a high degree of uncertainty, anxiety and stress about the health and safety of their loved ones, their colleagues and themselves. How this pandemic may disrupt their work and personal lives in the short term and over longer periods of time is another critical factor to be recognised and managed.
What does “the new normal” mean for you? How will this affect your stress and productivity levels? How does the CDC or Health Canada recommend that you wash your hands? Corridor’s Returning to Work with Confidence During COVID-19 not only educates employees on key warnings to watch for with their mental health but it also provides a library of resources from experts like the CMHA (Canadian Mental Health Association), CDC (Center for Disease Control), Mayo Clinic, and John Hopkins University COVID Research. Also included are links to resources that address the challenges of working at home and strategies to support a colleague who may be having trouble adjusting to change and the “new normal”.

As employers across the country consider these challenges, one thing is absolutely clear—careful planning is required to accomplish the potentially competing goals of maximizing protection from the effects of COVID-19 in the workplace for employees and customers, while at the same time minimizing disruption to business operations.
Benjamin F. Miller, chief strategy officer of WBT (Well Being Trust), stated in a press release. “…If we work to put in place healthy community conditions, good healthcare coverage, and inclusive policies, we can improve mental health and well-being…”.
Most employers are actively preparing physical responses to safeguard their business operations and protect the health of their employees. While this activity is vital, it’s equally important to plan for worker psychological health and safety. Employees who are challenged with anxiety in the workplace may struggle with personal interaction with colleagues, customers and even at home with family. The disruption to business and personal life is significant for people who experience some degree of debilitation with COVID stress. It is NOT business as usual as we return to our places of employment.
