Your workforce post pandemic - what to look out for and how to support

Presented by Lindsay Kohler

As people return to the office following an unsettling and uncertain period, how will they cope? What should you look out for and how can you best support pre-existing and newly arising issues?

Lindsay will be looking at this in more detail as she opens the Mental Health in the Workplace Conference against the backdrop of a return to normal after the most abnormal time of our lives.

She will also focus on topics around burnout, empathy, motivation, and morale — key pillars of the important work undertaken by Health & Safety and Human Resources professionals.

Learn more about the behavioural science for health and safety in the workplace, to leave the conference with a new understanding of how to best support your colleagues.

Your wellbeing strategy in a post-pandemic workplace

How to implement mental wellbeing in a post-Covid environment: presented by Sharon De Mascia, Chartered Occupational Psychologist and Director at Cognoscenti Business Psychologists Ltd

In this interactive workshop, Sharon will look at the changed workplace of our post-pandemic world. With more people working from home or in a hybrid situation, how will you keep track of their wellbeing? What is your strategy to keep an eye on your colleagues' mental health if they work on eg a construction site? They may not reach out for help - or even realise that they are experiencing mental health issues.

Sharon will work with you to give you a better idea on what your strategy could look like to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

The law and mental health in the workplace

Presented by Naeema Choudry, Partner at Human Resources Practice Group

Naeema will consider the legal position in relation to wellbeing at work and the roles and responsibilities managers have in ensuring that they create the correct conditions for employees to thrive in the workplace. She will also condition tricky issues such as dealing with and managing requests for flexible working from senior employees and older workers – studies show that only 9.8% of jobs paying more than £20,000 are advertised as flexible yet the demand for flexible working is greater than ever. Naeema will also consider how to overcome the negative effects of technology in the workplace which has resulted in employees being online for significant periods of time cutting into their leisure and rest times. The session will finish with a look at the law and mental health in the workplace.

If you google managing an employee with mental health issues you get page after page of information on everything except managing an employee with mental health. What should you say; what should you not say; what polices should you adhere to, what help do you offer, what adjustments should you make. This session will give you some practical no nonsense advice.
