Employees are key contributors to the success of a company and right now, they are maintaining these impeccable standards during a pandemic. As our world becomes more complex due to a new normal, so do the responsibilities and stressors of employees, and it is of utmost importance to focus on creating a stable work environment for them.
Without prior knowledge, employers won’t necessarily know that their employees are navigating additional stressors outside of their work life unless it is disclosed to them. Without the proper resources available to employees, it can directly impact their productivity, quality of work, and overall capacity to complete even the smallest of tasks due to the all-consuming stress of dealing with personal situations that are typically very time sensitive, and take place during business hours.
We’ve seen various scenarios that an employee might be facing, including:
- a new /single parent of a child with a health condition or disability
- an adult at a distance from parents with a health condition
- an employee living with a disability, or partner with a disability who would benefit from health care navigation
It is important for employers to recognize these scenarios when it comes to you as an employee, and how to act on these situations to create an environment that strengthens your abilities to complete the work at hand, while supporting your mental health and overall wellbeing.
