Mental Health and Work in the Pandemic – Returning to the Workplace
Event Venue and Description – Webinar
The pandemic has had a huge impact on the workplace, with many employees still working from home. But with the summer ahead and the vaccination programme rolling out quickly, this could be about to change. How keen are your staff to leave their homes and go back into the workplace and how will this affect their mental health?
Experience of long-term absence has shown that the longer people are away from the workplace environment, the more difficult it is to get back into it. Covid 19 could replicate this on a much larger scale.
According to a recent Acas policy paper, “The Road to enlightenment: work and mental health in the Pandemic”, 19% of adults were likely to be experiencing some form of depression during the pandemic, almost doubling the pre-pandemic figure of 10%. Research from the ONS reveals that at the start of November, with its darker evenings, 8% of adults were ‘always or often lonely’, representing 4.2 million people.
Delivered via Zoom, this digital conference looks at the impact the pandemic has had on our mental health and explores how businesses can prepare to support staff as they head back to the workplace.
