Lockdown has proven challenging for employers and employees alike, with significant, tangible changes to most businesses’ ways of working. However, the impact on employees’ mental health may be just as great, although the true cost may not be known for some time.
Join us this Mental Health Awareness Week to look at how lockdown is affecting employees’ mental health, what employers are doing to help and how the end of lockdown and return to work will impact employees. The webinar will be facilitated by David Regan, Director in our global Labour & Employment team. And we are delighted to be joined by Mark Hashimi from Mental Health Consultancy Strategic Wellbeing and Kate Diver, Head of People Risk and Expansions at TransferWise.
