“Through The Webcam”
Supporting the mental health of your employees in a blended work environment
For many years, employees were told to leave their problems at home when they come to the office. Due to the pandemic, work and home have blended into one and many companies are struggling with how they should respond. The balance has shifted and employers are realizing that if they don’t take care of the whole person then morale and performance can be impacted. Human Resource professionals play an important role in serving both the needs of the employee and the employer in issues related to grief, stress, and mental health. They often take on the role of counselor and must also think like an attorney in order to handle situations with compassion and professionalism. The presentation will focus on what we can do to make the workplace safe for honest emotions without letting it become a distraction or causing legal issues for your organization.
