If one good thing has come from this unprecedented crisis, it’s that mental wellbeing — particularly at work — has been put on the Management & Leadership mainstage. It’s resulted in an incredibly welcome focus on staff wellbeing, and organisations are more aware of their role in their employees’ mental health than ever before.
But as we begin to make preparations to re-enter the workplace, a new phase of change and uncertainty awaits. Teams will be grappling with a whole range of worries — from job security, financial concerns and returning to work after being furloughed, to their health, and the health of their families, as they start to use public transport and mix with others again. A YouGov poll found that more than 60% of adults in the UK feel anxious or worried about COVID-19.
