An interactive virtual workshop to support the mental wellness of your organization's employees during COVID-19
What is it?
An interactive wellness workshop facilitated via Zoom for your employees. The workshop can be facilitated as an "all staff" workshop, or a tailored workshop for leaders/managers. The leader's version includes the "all staff" content plus special content on how to support/manage teams during this time.
In addition to best practice content shared by Laura, participants have an opportunity for sharing and group brainstorming to implement strategies using Zoom virtual breakout rooms. It is recommended to reserve 2 -2.5 hours for this workshop to allow time for participant sharing. For groups larger than 30 participants, a general info-sharing format (1.5 hours) can be provided with time for open Q&A at the end of the presentation.
Why is it Important?
The COVID-19 pandemic is considered a "critical incident" for employees in the workplace. A critical incident is an event that is out of the ordinary and involves some form of human suffering or anguish. Critical incidents can result in distress and strong emotional responses from those affected. Such events usually overwhelm normal coping strategies and are disruptive to the workplace.
The focus of critical incident response is on cultivating psychological resiliency that supports employees to return to their pre-incident functioning. Psychological resilience is the ability to mentally or emotionally cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status quickly. Resilience exists when the person uses internal resources (like mindset and coping strategies) that they can pull on when things are tough.
Outside of it being just a right and good thing to do, supporting the mental health and wellness of your employees also has a strong business case. It's simple. Mentally healthy and resilient people are able to focus, be productive, and carry out their roles and responsibilities at work. Supporting employees' ability to learn about and cultivate resilience is a wise use of organizational resources.
