COVID-19 has caused a lot of uncertainty and we are living in the ‘new normal’.
Companies have to ensure they are providing support to their employees, especially with their mental health and well being. Employees and also employers may have been affected in different ways through this virus (ie. loss of family/close friends/lockdown) we do not know how long it will take some to recover from the effects of COVID-19 so how they are dealt with by the employer will help to aid with their mental health recovery and their overall well being.
Changes will need to be made to assist in employees returning to work and also employers will need to do Risk Assessments for each employee based on their individual circumstances/health requirements.
