Managing Employees Mental Health During a Crisis

April 21, 2020 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST

As COVID-19 continues to have an impact on the workforce and businesses globally, HR leaders are reminded of the importance of looking after both the physical and mental wellbeing of their employees. Maintaining psychological health in an extended and uncertain crisis can be difficult, as ‘stay home’ measures increases the risk of social isolation, stress and anxiety about the future. How can HR help employees cope during this stressful crisis?

  • Leveraging tried and tested strategies to support employees mental health during challenging circumstances
  • Mitigating stress by addressing employees concerns regarding job security, finances and extended remote working arrangements
  • Creating open and consistent communication between HR, leaders and employees
  • Using online tools and services to offer support and connection
