Managing the wellbeing of remote workers
Over the course of the coronavirus pandemic, many people started working from home for the first time. While for some, this will be a temporary measure, many workers may want to continue remote working into the future, or consider working from home more frequently even as things return to normal. As a people manager, this might be a new challenge for you.
This podcast from CIPD explores the difficulties working remotely or under a lockdown can cause, and discusses ways you can ensure you’re still taking good care of your employees’ wellbeing. It features advice from Andrea Winfield, HR Director at Microsoft, Professor Neil Greenberg, Professor of Defence Mental Health at Kings College, and Rachel Suff, Senior Employee Relations Adviser at CIPD.
It is available both as a 30-minute long podcast, and as a transcript if you’d prefer to read the discussion.
