We have survived the trauma of a global pandemic. Many people of “over” the pandemic but the pandemic is far from over with us.  The reality is that we haven’t returned to the “pre-pandemic” normal. Normalcy in both our personal and professional lives is far removed from our present reality.  The global news brings added pressures from the war in the Ukraine, higher fuel and food prices and mass shootings. Each of these events can affect worker outlook as they are added to the pressures of daily living.  In addition to the general effects of the pandemic, Connecticut employers are facing record worker shortages with over 100,000 open positions, creating the need for creative solutions for retaining our present workers who are being lured away by other opportunities including the opportunity to resign or retire.

Each of these factors make it more important than ever for us as employers to recognize the importance of the mental health of our workers. Working age people spend the majority of their waking hours at work and as employers, we have the opportunity to create positive and responsive workplaces which will help us retain and attract workers.  It is vital that we recognize the need for supporting not only the physical health of our employees, but also their mental health.  In this webinar, mental health expert Steve Crimando will offer insights and best practices which will help you:

  • Understand the nature of the ongoing trauma caused by the pandemic and other global events and their effect on our workers health, productivity and happiness
  • Understand how we can address worker concerns caused by both global and personal events and make worker mental health a top priority
  • Learn how to support the mental health of your workers in a manner which eliminates the stigma surrounding mental health disabilities
  • Recognize the signs of trauma in your workplace
  • Utilize the best practices for recognizing and addressing a mental health emergency in your workplace

Join us and learn how you can make your workplace a truly great place to work.
