The pandemic has left a negative impact on people’s mental wellbeing. For some, we are not quite ‘burned out’ but we are not flourishing either.
A languishing and/or surviving state that feels like we’re muddling through our days and viewing lives through a foggy windshield.
With the easing of pandemic restrictions, it is easy to assume that everyone will return to ‘normal’. But this is not the case.
The big challenge for employers
The big challenge for employers is this rather negative wellbeing is carried into the workplace, and organisations now need to adopt effective steps to managing the risks of stress and mental ill health among their staff.
With a few exceptions, most organisations along with their Boards, directors, CEOs and senior leadership group take this challenge seriously.
Yet being aware of the situation and recognising its importance, is not the same as knowing what the best solution is. Furthermore, lacking seems to be what type of program and how to introduce and roll it out to be effective?
Here are some of the steps to consider:
Making sure wellbeing is not just a hollow buzz phrase
From engagement to productivity, adopting an organisational approach to wellbeing demonstrates to staff that their concerns are not just being listened to, but acted on. It’s your proof to them that their psychological safety and wellbeing is of huge value to the organisation, and not just a hollow buzz phrase (that’s a trend at the moment).
