The biggest impact of C19 on employee mental health and how you can address this moving forward.

Faye McGuiness, Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes at Mind, talks to us about the impact C19 has had on the mental health of employees and how leaders can address this moving forward.

With 300,000 people losing their jobs every year because of poor mental health, it's never been more important for leaders to take action.

We discuss:

  • How employers can increase employee engagement and involvement with wellness initiatives.
  • What leaders can do to support employees’ mental health from a prevention perspective.
  • Advice for getting senior buy-in and creating the right conditions for culture change.
  • The biggest impact of C19 on the mental health of employees and how leaders can address this moving forward.
  • Advice for anyone wanting to implement a new wellness initiative at their company.
