The Coronavirus pandemic, or COVID-19 has created truly stressful and anxiety inducing times for many employees! There’s worry for one’s own health and for loved ones, plus economic issues to contend with. Many companies have already had to furlough or downsize their teams. This means that people are dealing with the stress and anxiety of joblessness. Even if they’re still employed, they are likely dealing with strong emotions. They may be upset about their coworkers being let go, experiencing stress over their partners employment status, dealing with the new stresses of working from home, and worried that the company will need to downsize further and they’ll be next on the list. These fears and difficulties can deeply impact the mental health of employees, and it’s important to help your team cope with stress, fear and worry before it impacts their ability to work.
