Your employees embraced the changes created by the pandemic like the heroes they are. And although you may have worried about how they would perform working remotely, they’ve come through for you. However, a new survey suggests that some workers are struggling:
- 57% of employees are experiencing social isolation.
- 50% have anxieties about COVID-19.
- 52% of managers say they are tired from working long hours.
- 77% of employees say establishing boundaries between work and personal life is challenging, and 44% say they don’t know how to develop the skills to do this effectively.
To address these concerns, take a fresh look at your culture and make sure it promotes trust, support, transparency, and teamwork. Make sure employees feel comfortable sharing their concerns about overwork and stress and their fears about the pandemic. Empower leaders to help their teams, and don’t over-rely on HR.
