How has the pandemic affected people's mental health and how should employers handle it in turn? Find out in this webinar.
According to a survey by Gallup, 7/10 people globally are struggling with their mental health. As mental health problems have been made increasingly worse by ongoing crises such as the pandemic, it is imperative as employers that we take the time to look at what we can do to assist our employees.
As we discussed in our previous session, Managing Conflict in a Burnout World, employers should take a position of understanding the problems their employees are facing with a holistic approach. The modern way of working, the ‘whole-self’ environment at work brings an expectation for workplaces to look at the support that they can provide.
In this upcoming webinar, we will be joined by Dr. Jen Daffin, Community Clinical Psychologist and Trauma Informed Practice Lead from Platfform and resident speaker, Anna Denton-Jones from Refreshing Law Ltd. Dr. Daffin will be looking at the psychology behind the trauma caused by the pandemic, what that has changed in terms of what employers will see in work and how employers need to think differently in the responses they make going forward. Anna Denton-Jones will be supplementing this talk with what this means for employers from a legal perspective and to be on hand for any questions regarding employment law.
Welsh Charities Week will take place between 21st – 25th of November and we are delighted to have partnered with Platfform for this event. Platfform is a charity working to change approaches to mental health by working with people who are experiencing challenges with their mental health, and with communities who want to create a greater sense of connection, ownership and well-being in the places that they live.
