New research into working life post-pandemic has shown that a distressing 42% of employees want to receive more support from their employer when it comes to their mental health. As we evolve and adapt to this new post-pandemic hybrid way of working, it will become increasingly important that we as leaders take steps to transform our approach to how we lead our teams and ensure that their mental health and wellbeing remain at the forefront.
However, supporting the team’s mental health is understandably more difficult when half of the team is working remotely at any given time. Therefore, we are going to explore this issue in-depth in our live discussion for HRs and leaders with a founder at RoRemote and a Remote Work Expert Rowena Hennigan. We are going to discuss how to build awareness around this topic, how to practise empathic leadership, how to create an open and supportive team culture and what kind of tools and additional support we can use in this journey.
Date & time: 27th of July, 11:30 AM EEST
