As some employees are getting called back to the workplace, employers need to consider new stressors that workers have been experiencing (health and safety fears, changes in work-life demands, etc.). The team tackled strategies and solutions for dealing with this impact.
By tuning in, you’ll learn ways to create a psychologically safe workplace for employees. These approaches include destigmatizing mental health, improving benefits communication, encouraging leaders to promote self-care and finding ways for employees to connect—to name a few.
I know that workplaces across the country have all been dealing with different challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic—I hope this episode will equip you with a few ideas for how to support your employees during this transitional time.
