It’s been a hot topic ever since the pandemic began: wellbeing and mental health. Before the pandemic even began, workers were more stressed, anxious, and overworked than ever before. Longer hours made it even harder to disconnect from work.
The last few years have given people opportunity to reflect on their mental health as nations were cast into lockdown after lockdown and makeshift home office setups. The question for many organisations as we emerge into the new normal is: ‘’how can we support our workers to help them reconnect?’’
Research from Adecco’s recent survey, “Disconnect to Reconnect,” shows that wellbeing remains a key issue for workers, even more so now than during pandemic. The survey gathered perspectives on burnout and the future of work from more than a dozen countries worldwide. It highlighted that the level of support that workers feel from their company is playing a major role in whether they decide to stay in their jobs or leave for better conditions.
