Work is a major part of their life for many people. It is where they spend most of their time, interacting with others and often make friends for life. Since the lockdown was introduced, these office interactions have decreased because more employees’ have had to work from home.
The combination of homeschooling, working from home, the fear of becoming ill and restricted access to visit loved ones has naturally affected mental health. Here at TalenTeam, we have created a list and a solution to help improve your employees’ wellbeing during the pandemic.
One of the most important things to do to improve wellbeing is to keep in contact. A quick daily catchup on conferencing tools such as Zoom can help maintain the interaction with employees and keep them focused on their work.
Introducing SAP SuccessFactors to your projects can also help organisations remain connected, keep supply chains running, share ideas and collaborate on projects.
To help keep your employees’ mental health more focused, introducing various virtual training courses can help improve this. This will not only improve their skills, but can also help learners keep their thoughts and minds away from the pandemic. SAP JAM can also help support businesses with this, as the tool gives staff the ability to create their own collaborative virtual learning culture.
This is incredibly important for HR, as it’s vital to make sure that their colleagues are psychologically fit to work. Scheduling secure one-to-one meetings will help improve staff interactions and help HR understand the opportunities to improve the employees’ wellbeing.
Making a mental health kit can help HR monitor the mental health of their colleagues. A mental health kit can include:
This survey can help report current feelings and attitudes while working from home, as well as highlighting any other areas that require more attention and support.
Introducing various activities for staff can help improve mental health, focus and self-esteem. These activities could be:
A tidy desk equals a tidy mindset. Including a checklist in the mental health toolkit can help employees maintain the cleanliness of their workspace, therefore making sure that they don’t get into bad habits.
Including useful phone numbers and emails into the toolkit can help remind staff that whenever they feel stressed, there is always someone to contact. Staying in communication is key, and employees shouldn’t feel afraid to share how they feel.
