Employee well-being and mental health during Coronavirus

News on 04 May 2020

Whether your team has been working from home, on furlough, or self-isolating – it has been tough for everyone during this lockdown.

It’s really important that you check-in with your employees and team members to make sure that they are doing alright.

A lot of people are struggling with the lockdown – it may be that someone is living alone, or someone now has their job and home schooling to juggle. This won’t just affect people who have existing mental health conditions.

There are lots of things you can do to keep in contact with your team. Gemma, our HR Director, has been talking to our clients on ‘well-being Zoom calls’, advising line managers on how to approach the topic of well-being with their staff.

Our top tips:

  • Talk often – a video call, chat on the phone, or even a nice email can go a long way

Here are some really good articles that will help you adjust your way of working:
