Half of Canadians (50%) report a worsening of their mental health since the onset of the pandemic, with one-in-ten (10% overall) saying it has worsened “a lot”. How concerned are you about the mental health and psychological safety of your workforce as you begin to discuss protocols for reintegration into the workplace? We are calling this reintegration into the workplace “Work 2.0 Reboot,” Why? The old normal is gone. The new normal is yet to be determined. The degree of impact COVID-19 will have on employee mental health has just begun. Employers are advised to be aware of the lesson from previous disasters in Canada. We are still in the honeymoon stage; the disillusionment stage is pending as we must be mindful of a second wave of COVID-19 and the financial and mental tools this can have on an already taxed workforce.
Moderated by Stuart MacLean, Chief Executive Officer, WCB Nova Scotia. In this 60 minute webinar Dr. Bill Howatt will provide employers with some factors and insights to consider to proactively protect and support employees’ mental health. Not all employees will embrace Work 2.0 with the same level of commitment, readiness, and capabilities. The goal of this webinar is for you to walk with some ideas and a framework to create your mental health impact plan.
