The onset of the coronavirus pandemic has caused the world of work to change, with individuals and businesses having to adapt to a new ‘normal’.
The uncertainty created can lead to stress and anxiety, with individuals across the country worrying about how they will pay their bills or provide for their families.
When this stress becomes prolonged, it threatens both the physical and emotional wellbeing of individuals, which in turn can have a real impact on the prosperity of businesses. These emotional wellbeing issues have become more visible in terms of the discussion about the new way of working during Mental Health Awareness Week.
