Good mental health – a priority for employers and staff
May 11 2021
Mental health is very much in focus at the moment as employees return to the workplace after a long and challenging year of COVID, or continue working from home as part of a new long-term strategy of employers.
Whether your staff are continuing to work remotely or are heading back to the workplace, many employers are facing up to the need of prioritising good employee mental health and wellbeing.
A better working environment
Companies have a duty of care but it goes further than that! A healthy happy workforce is not only the best situation for them but also a definite advantage for you in terms of productivity and reducing the number of sickness days which can be so damaging to any firm.
COVID have caused many problems and deteriorating mental health is a major concern as staff have had to endure many months of isolation from colleagues and the work environment which can prove so crucial to a healthier lifestyle.
We know a number will continue to work remotely as some companies have seen the undoubted advantages this can have. But whether this is your policy moving forward or whether staff are returning to work, you will want to ensure they are in the peak of mental health. Which is where My Occ Health comes in!
