Supporting employees to stay healthy and happy

Posted on: May 19th, 2020 by Ginny Hallam

Mental Health Awareness Week landing amidst the ongoing pandemic again highlights the challenges you face in supporting your teams to stay healthy and happy. You may have employees physically back at work, working remotely, or still furloughed, each with their own needs and concerns.

ACAS has released guidance on supporting mental health at work during coronavirus, with communication being key – whether that’s regular contact with those working remotely, or actively listening to the concerns of those returning to work.

Here’s a reminder of our thoughts on helping your teams to stay healthy and happy and keeping your communication fresh, fun and focussed. If you have access to Intelligent Employment, you can find even more suggestions in our ‘Ideas for supporting human be-ins‘ document (under the ‘HR tools’ header).

Mental health toolkit

As an employer, you’re not expected to be a medical expert, but you play a huge part in promoting employee well-being and mental health. We’ve created a user-friendly toolkit providing you and your managers the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to support your team’s mental health needs within the wider employment law context.
