Unleash Your Employees How the COVID-19 learnings can support employees to shift from anxiety to resilience.

This guide, written by mental health and wellbeing experts, Rightsteps, and employee benefits and wellbeing specialists, Secondsight, offers 5 essential tips on how you could help employees to build resilience and become mentally and
financially stronger.

Improving employee resilience and wellbeing for better performance:

  • Help employees to gain confidence to move forward and adapt to a post-Covid world.
  • Encourage your people to take greater control of their mental and financial wellbeing.
  • Support employees to build strong emotional and economic foundations, so they are always prepared should the unexpected happen.

The pandemic has brought insecurities and fears into the lives of many employees. We’ve faced a lot of uncertainty and quickly had to adapt to a new reality. As a result of the pandemic, numerous businesses have had to close their doors for good, which has led to many experiencing job losses, either directly or they’ve witnessed close friends and family lose their jobs. And, in many cases, others have seen their salaries reduced.

In addition, loneliness derived from working from home has put a strain on the wellbeing and work/life balance of many. According to a survey by TotalJobs, 74% of young workers have experienced loneliness during lockdown, with the average number of people we interact with daily halved (down 51%) since March last year.

However, 2021 is thankfully bringing some relief with cautious roadmaps to reopen and restart the economy, as well as a steady flow of vaccination roll-outs. More than a year since the introduction of the first lockdowns in many nations, it’s time to reflect on how far we have come and how we could use some of the lessons learned to become a happier, healthier, and more resilient workforce.
