In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the health and wellbeing of the workforce is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. 6 months of working from home, without a commute and with the ability to spend more time with family and friends, have moved the goalposts when it comes to a work-life balance, and employee wellbeing is more important than ever. For others, months of working from home may have had a detrimental impact on mental health.
When the time comes, one simple way to encourage your team to make the move back to the office is by showing that they are cared for and safe at work. Investing in the wellbeing, both physical and mental, of your staff will make the transition back to the workplace much more smooth, and may help alleviate stress if they know they will be looked after at work.
