Posted in: Events, News

What you might have missed at the second program in our “Success Leaves Clues” series of virtual programs:

Many Happy Returns: Mental Health and  the “New Better” Workplace, 

When: June 17, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Where: Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting

Having survived the trauma of a global pandemic, this was a first look at returning to some semblance of normalcy in both our personal and professional lives. Many adults in the United States were already fully vaccinated and as business leaders, we are looking to the future and plans to bring our workers back to the office.

After a year or more of virtual work, business leaders were making unprecedented decisions about the future of their workplaces. Some businesses decided to remain virtual even if it was safe to return to the office, some implemented a hybrid model which allowing workers to choose to work virtually or in the office and other businesses required that their workers return to their offices.

Decisions about the future of our workplaces continue to impact the professional and personal lives of our employees. The pandemic has required us to create workplace policies and procedures to protect the physical health of our employees. In order to create a positive and productive work environment, we must also consider the mental health of our employees.

It is vital that we recognize the many ways in which all of our workers have been affected by the significant changes in our lives caused by the continuing global pandemic.

How can you help your employees make a smooth, and hopefully, happy transition to the “new better” in your business?

In this webinar, mental health expert Steve Crimando offered insights and best practices to:

  • Understand the nature of the trauma caused by the pandemic and how it has affected us
  • Understand, recognize and address worker concerns about returning to the office
  • Recognize the signs of pandemic trauma in your workplace
  • Utilize the best practices for recognizing and addressing a mental health emergency in your workplace

Attendees learned how to make the “new normal” the “new better” for your business and its employees.
