Will the third week of your new normal be the most difficult? It’s time to focus on Mental Health & Wellbeing

The environment around us is changing, from where, how – or even if we can – continue to work, alongside the daily updates of how the Coronavirus pandemic is impacting on the health and the economy of both the UK and globally.

Employees’ health and well-being are paramount in the current situation with employers needing to be proactive in protecting their people and minimising the risk to staff and business continuity.

It has been reported that the third week of working from home is supposed to be the toughest on people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Which is why on the 9th of April, 11am, the Employee Ownership Association’s third Better Together Webinar will tackle the topic of “Looking After Colleagues: Mental Health & Wellbeing”.

The guest speaker is Ben Channon, who has stepped away from his usual role of project architect at Assael Architecture to spearhead an innovative approach as Head of Wellbeing to make sure there is a health and wellbeing focus in projects throughout the practice.
