About this event:
The COVID-19 crisis has transformed the way we work as a society and this is profoundly impacting the mental health and wellbeing of UK employees.
Almost overnight British businesses had to adapt to the challenges of remote working on mass, as the high and lows of lockdown took their toll on households nationwide. Pressures of homeschooling, fears of financial insecurity, alongside unnatural living/working conditions have placed immense strains on families like never before, while disconnected staff have looked to employers for reassurance during a period of unprecedented uncertainty. As a result of the crisis, experts warn that anxiety levels have worsened, alongside conditions such as OCD, while a recent survey by IPSOS Mori indicated that the majority of Brits were reluctant to visit large gatherings or use public transport.
Our next Deskflix season, in association with Legal & General, will shine a light on the evolving mental health landscape following the COVID-19 outbreak and the challenges faced by employers post-lockdown. Live and direct, group risk and workplace wellbeing experts will debate how employee support schemes are adapting to the changing needs of the modern workforce throughout the pandemic and beyond.
Tune in on the day – or watch on-demand – this CPD accredited virtual event also features an exhibition hall, an interactive panel discussion as well as networking opportunities.
