Working from home, isolation, furlough and the many other challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak has had a huge impact on mental health and wellbeing.
It has recently been reported that the cost of staff absences from work due to mental health reasons increased last year by £1.3 billion compared to 2019.
As lockdown restrictions are finally set to ease, this topical webinar addresses key legal considerations for employers on how to address employees’ mental health.
- Employers’ legal obligations during lockdown/self-isolation for employees with caring responsibilities
- How employers can help and support staff returning to work
- The legal risks and issues around protecting your employees’ mental health and wellbeing, and how to address these
- Addressing employees’ concerns about returning to the workplace
Webinar guest speaker: Ceri Hodgkiss, West Kent Mind
Our webinar guest speaker is Ceri Hodgkiss from West Kent Mind. Ceri introduces two key tools to assist you with supporting your employees’ mental health and wellbeing: the HSE Talking Toolkit and the Wellness Action Plan from Mind. Used as part of a holistic approach to health within your organisation, these can inform and support your existing or developing wellbeing policy.
With 40% of our wellbeing guided by our own actions and attitude to life, we can all take small steps to improve our mental health. Ceri also shares top tips for self-care and identifies some positive coping strategies to help us navigate the next few months.
