Workforce Wellbeing: Beyond the pandemic and into the future
As the pandemic enters its 3rd year and some of the restrictions on day-to-day life are lifted, the reality is we still live in extraordinary and challenging times. Coronavirus rates remain high, with an ongoing impact on the life and workload of many. At home, increased pressures from the cost of living. In the world around us, unpredictability of evolving geopolitical and climate events. At work, services are striving to catch up with backlogs which continue to stretch even further a workforce who have delivered over and above for the past few years. As a result, the importance of thinking about how we support this workforce remains a crucial priority. Organisations need to provide good working conditions and we all have a role to play in ensuring people can stay well at work.
