The new working from home measures are drawing to a close in the UK, with offices set to reopen on 12th June.
Creating a safe roadmap to the reopening of the offices should be a priority. And embedded into your office reopening roadmap should be a focus on mental health.
Our 'Back to Work' workshop has been tailor-made to make returning to the office a smooth and positive experience for everyone.
Since the start of Covid-19 in March 2020, general mental health related illnesses have increased, with individuals displaying increased levels of anxiety, isolation, loneliness and depression.
Covid-19 forced many companies to work entirely remotely, this change in routine from a mental health stance has led to individuals experiencing high levels of zoom-fatigue, slow-onset burnout, difficulties in being able to switch off from work and balancing home and work life.
Studies show that:
If individuals are already experiencing feelings of burnout, expecting them to go back to the office and to working at 100% with 5 full days of early morning starts, commutes, late nights and balancing home responsibilities on top - it will lead to unhappy, unproductive staff which in turn will cost your business.
Perhaps it is for the reasons above, there is large volumes of evidence that reveals:
an overwhelmingly large percentage (81%) of British workers do not wish to go back to the office.
19% of participants wanted to go back to the office for a full five day work week,
55% expressed wanting to see permanent changes to work life post pandemic.

Only one in ten of people feel like their mental health will recover in the next three to six months as life slowly begins to return to normal. It is therefore essential that as people begin to return to work, you as an employer continue to communicate with the employees about mental health and build a culture where workers feel supported and are comfortable.
Start looking after your most valuable asset today. Because doing something about the mental health of your staff is so much better than talking about it.
