The pandemic has changed the world of work significantly. For many of us, it has been a real challenge. But as the country begins to open up, we are finally able to look into the future with a bit more certainty. Organisations have had to change, and the return to work brings an excellent opportunity to learn, adapt, and improve.
With the return to work finally upon us, employees are only now beginning to see the tangible effects of COVID upon their workplace. For some, the drastic changes over the past year or so can lead to a feeling of worry. As with all kinds of trauma, it may take time for post-COVID anxiety to become fully realised. This is a strange time for all, employees and employers alike.
Wellbeing Solutions are fully aware of the new challenges in the workplace. It is incredibly important that the transition back to work is as seamless as possible, for both employees and employers. That is why we are introducing specialised, bespoke and tailored options designed with managers and staff in mind.
We have developed comprehensive mental health webinars for staff, specifically built around return-to-work anxiety and establishing resilience in these trying times. These are made to remind staff of the support that is available to them, and to help raise awareness of the broader mental health issues surrounding the return to work.
Complimenting these webinars are our tailor made training resources for managers. Available in the form of webinars or interactive zoom sessions, these resources are designed to help managers incorporate mental health into their organisation’s broader return to work plan. Whether it is helping to establish an “anxiety aware” workplace environment, or upskilling managers to recognise the signs of post-COVID anxiety, our products are here to ensure a smooth return to work.
An event such as the pandemic has had the massive positive of introducing issues of mental health into the public conversation. The normalisation of open discussions of mental health in the workplace is welcome, but there is still some significant work to do. We are yet to see the broader mental health implications of the pandemic across society, but having an intuitive, empathetic and honest approach to workplace mental health is an incredibly effective way to meet the challenges that we face.
