Employee Health & Wellbeing
Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) many of us may feel anxious about our health, both physical and mental, and that of our loved ones. The health and well-being of our employees is paramount and we aim to support employees the best we can. These are some of the useful resources available:
- Our partners at LesMills are offering all of our member’s access to their iconic programs via Les Mills On Demand absolutely free and our employees can access this too.
- The Mental Health Foundation has put together some tips to help you, your friends and your family to look after your mental health while you have to stay at home.
- MIND has released a guide for coronavirus and well-being, which is really useful if you are feeling the effects of being isolated and a lot of anxiety about your finances and the situation in general. The guide has a number of really helpful tips and resources including a checklist for preparing for self-isolation.
- Buffer also has a useful guide to dealing with loneliness as a remote worker. It’s a very real problem for people who work from home all the time, so anyone suddenly finding themselves in this new situation may find this helpful.
- There is also the Employee Assistance Programme PAM Assist. Additional information regarding COVID-19 is also available to employees by logging into the employee assistance programme site and clicking on ‘health’. https://login.pamassist.co.uk/home
- Advice for Supporting Children and Young People – A number of organisations have worked together to develop a short document with information about having conversations with children and young people about COVID-19 and resources to help explain and support anxiety around this.
- There is guidance available for employees experiencing domestic abuse while homeworking due to COVID-19.
- The Coronavirus outbreak has changed daily life for us all in Scotland and has had a real impact on how many of us are feeling. It's ok to not feel yourself right now and if this is the case then take a look at The Clear Your Head Campaign as it has some great tips to help get you through these times.
As part of Mental Health Week we’re sharing stories on some of our colleagues and what they are doing to help them get through lockdown life. From Couch to 5K, mountain biking and baking to morning workouts with the kids and spin sessions, it’s fantastic to find out what is helping get people through this difficult time.
