Mental Health & Telework
With telework becoming more common during the COVID-19 pandemic, this session addresses the unique challenges this brings to caring for and about employee mental health. It will provide a high-level overview on how we can build psychologically-healthy and safe workplaces when the place of work is the home.
By the end of this session, participants will:
- Be introduced to concepts of psychological health and safety in a disseminated working environment
- Understand how to care for employee mental health in an asynchronous business resumption process
- Know how managers and staff can engage in constructive conversations about their needs when they are not present in the physical workspace
