The home is now the workplace and the lines have become very blurred…
Many organisations have implemented employee wellness initiatives to help employees implement self-care routines, and to find a balance between home responsibilities and work deliverables.
Organisations are starting to realise that employees are not necessarily safe working from home. Whether we want to admit it or not, gender based violence and harassment (GBVH) happens on a daily basis in our homes, our communities and our businesses. Many organisational policies still make reference to the physical workplace and have not been updated to include a virtual or work from home environment, which can result in non-compliance and have serious ramifications for businesses and leaders.
- Are your mental health policies effective?
- What is mental health costing your organisation?
- How safe are your employees working from home?
To find out more on this topic and how you may take action within your organisation, please join us for this event.
FNB will also be providing feedback on the work they have been doing regarding Mental Health and Wellness.
