Free webinar: Mental Health in the Workplace
The latest HSE survey* on work-related stress in UK employees (published in December 2021) highlights that while the rate of self-reported work-related stress, depression or anxiety has been steadily increasing, unsurprisingly the latest findings were considerably higher than the 2018/19 pre-coronavirus levels. Research earlier in the year in the USA by Indeed.com* reported 67% of their 1500 survey respondents reported feeling “burned out”, with even more feeling this had got worse during the pandemic.
Media reports suggest discussions about mental health are tending to be more open, but there is still a fear of discrimination that prevents these conversations in the workplace. This webinar provides practical ideas and suggestions on how best to support staff and managers for their mental wellbeing. Join Nicola Waters of Apex HR and Sue Windley of the Be Ready Employer Hub as they discuss the implications of the pandemic on the mental health of managers and staff in local businesses, and what simple but effective solutions can be put in place.
