According to The S A Depression & Anxiety Group:
·Many individuals experienced an increase in anxiety fearing a COVID-19 infection and the uncertainty of how the pandemic would influence daily life.
·Anxieties were further fueled by lockdown
·Many people across South Africa are now able to return to a working day at the office, but uncertainty is now again causing an increase in anxiety because a new norm and a new reality of life at work needs to be implemented once again.
It’s now more important than ever, that companies, employers make the mental health of their employees a priority.
“Poor mental health among employees is one of the greatest challenges facing organizations today. It impacts on performance, productivity and – of course – the bottom line”.
The one thing leaders cannot do is nothing. They cannot wait for current trends to pass them by.
If this sounds like something that would be good for your organization, I’d love to hear from you. You’ll get there faster with a bit of help.
