With one in four people in the UK likely to be affected by mental ill health at some stage in their lives, employers need to be able to manage the risk this presents within their organisation at every stage in the employment relationship. By providing an environment in which affected employees feel supported when issues do arise and where management are confident enough to be proactive, risks can be minimised, business can operate as usual and the workforce can be healthier, happier and more productive.
However, getting things right is an ongoing challenge and never more so than in recent months. The recent shift toward greater use of home working undoubtedly offers many advantages for employers and employees alike, but it can also present real problems. Our experience of lockdown has shown that feelings of anxiety and isolation can be common and the boundary between home and work can be a difficult one to manage.
During mental health awareness week, Employment Law specialist, Chris Phillips will host a 1 hour webinar and online Q&A where he will tackle the key issues employers and HR professionals are facing at the current time, while providing practical steps you can take to help your organisation adjust to the changing face of our workplace arrangements.
