Health and Wellbeing

Wellbeing issues at work are increasingly all too common!

Most people spend the majority of their waking lives at work.  High stress, long hours, tough targets, lots of computer-time, difficult colleagues and clients, financial worries, and a poor work-life balance can all take a physical and mental toll.

The coronavirus has added a new level of stress for many people and businesses.

There are very few jobs that have not been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  From furlough to job losses and financial insecurity, to simply losing the structure of our daily routines, coronavirus has changed working life significantly.  Furthermore, many people have been facing this time without being able to see their loved ones in person.  Mind has put together some advice and support for businesses and their staff to help manage everyone's wellbeing during this ever-changing situation – from working at home to supporting team members with children.
