Looking after your physical health
Mental and physical health often go hand in hand, and keeping active is a great idea to support your immune system too. Even better, online ways of working out mean that you can get your fit fix without having to leave the house. They’re particularly good if you, or any of your employees are self-isolating or in quarantine.
Coping with grief or bereavement
As an employer, it can be difficult to know what to say or do in these circumstances. In some cases, there may be a significant time delay between the loss and the start of the grieving process.
Being able to seek advice and offer appropriate resources to employees is important. Here we've provided some resources that you may find useful.
