Managing and supporting employee wellbeing

Safeguarding the health wellbeing of your workforce has never been more important as government restrictions are lifted.


One of the most concerning fallouts of the global pandemic has been the impact on many businesses' daily operations and how this has affected employees. While the economy must pick up, there is a considerable responsibility on employers who depend on staff transitioning back to the workplace. They need to create a safe, healthy and equitable working environment. Getting staff back to work, staff resilience and mental health issues were listed as one of the biggest concerns by governance professionals this year.

As organisations continue to evaluate their future working models, those who intend to reopen when government restrictions are lifted will face additional challenges in terms of how best to support employee wellbeing, manage a hybrid workforce and address ethical implications with the COVID-19 vaccine.
