“It’s never been more important for employers to invest in employee mental
health.” (1) Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing, Mind
As the Coronavirus pandemic brought about new working habits, it also led to an increase in feelings of stress and anxiety for many. Here in the UK, a report by mental health charity Mind found that more than half of adults said that their mental health had got worse during lockdown (2) and 80% of Brits said that working from home has negatively impacted their mental health, according to a survey by Nuffield Health. (3) With remote working becoming the new normal, how can you support employee mental wellbeing during a pandemic?

Benefits to your staff
Introducing online wellness benefits is a great way to help your staff disconnect from feeling ‘always-on’ while at home. It shows your appreciation for their hard work, which makes them feel valued and promotes a supportive and friendly culture. The communal nature of online corporate workshops and classes promote better team collaboration and the techniques covered in the sessions can lead to lower stress levels.
Benefits to your business
Prioritising your staff wellbeing can lead to more productive staff who are less likely to require time off due to illness. A report by Deloitte in early 2020 found that for every pound spent on workplace wellbeing interventions, employers received five pounds back on average due to fewer absences, less employees working when unwell, and less staff turnover.
