Mental health and well-being in the workplace

Posted on: October 8th, 2020

With World Mental Health Day around the corner and the COVID pandemic challenging even the most resilient of individuals, mental health and well-being at work continues to be one of the most difficult and complicated issues that employers encounter.

Getting it wrong can be extremely damaging to staff morale and reputation, as well as time consuming and costly, so Coffin Mew teamed up with Stratus Coaching and recruitment experts, Hays, on 8 October to host a webinar on this hugely topical issue.  Attracting over 100 senior HR professionals and directors, this interactive session focused on exploring the strategic considerations for employers planning for the workplace of the future, as well as practical steps businesses can take to improve and support their employees’ well-being in a time of constantly changing government guidance. 

In a poll 90% of delegates anticipated that home/agile working would become integral to the way their workforce operates, with about half indicating that remote working would largely replace attending a physical workplace. The return to the office was also high on the agenda of concerns and provoked a substantial Q&A session dealing with risk assessment and consultation, Covid anxiety, how to handle those who refuse to return, whistleblowing, H&S detriment and flexible working requests.

Topics also included:
