Guide to support wellbeing of remote workers

April 28 2020

Protecting and supporting your staff’s mental health: a line manager’s guide is the latest resource to support mental health during the Coronavirus outbreak

The guide is designed to provide practical advice on how line managers can protect staff mental health by listening, helping in terms of reasonable adjustments, and where appropriate, signposting. Key issues such as compassionate leadership, delivering unwelcome news, managing staff working from home and managing staff who have been furloughed are all covered in the resource.

There is also a set of Quick Tips to accompany the full guide. This covers a range of subjects from talking about the Coronavirus, encouraging a work/life balance and providing digital information on wellbeing.

Clare Stafford, CEO of the Charlie Waller Trust, said:

During these uncertain times, it is more important than ever that all employers pay particular attention to protecting the mental health of their employees. You don’t need to be an expert, but by following some very simple guidelines you could provide much-needed support to a member of your team who might be struggling.
Upcoming event

With restrictions sadly increasing again, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still have fun from the comfort of your own home! This autumn, we’re inviting you to set up a game of Chicago Bridge or Rubber Bridge, either online or face-to-face with your friends and family.
