Thank you for taking the time to find out more about how you can help your team get through COVID-19. The fact that you are here, shows that you value both the health of your workers and business.
Without doubt, you are aware of the stress in workplaces today. Workplace Minds is committed to improving health within the workplace - that includes individuals on a personal level, the impact it can have on families and teams, the toll it takes on us all, including our leaders. Then of course the health of the business (I'm referring to the financial burden of $11Billion each year, in lost productivity, compensation claims and ever increasing insurance premiums.)
Since COVID-19, many people have been subjected to various challenges that have affected them in different ways. Many workplaces have had to change rapidly to stay operational, some have had to restructure and or downsize. For some, it may be the fear of whats to come.
Generally speaking, these experiences have increased our awareness of the importance of our own mental health and wellbeing.
Prior to COVID-19, the term Psychological Safety was increasingly discussed in workplaces. Slowly we have started to educate our workplaces about hazardous behaviours and cultures that increase our risk of developing preventable mental health problems. COVID-19 (and our response) has certainly presented a new set of challenges for workplaces to navigate.
We are here to help you reduce this risk and get through the COVID-19 Pandemic, and out the other side in hopefully even better state than before.
