One the biggest challenges…has been the lack of importance regarding mental health in the workplace. While recent years have shown that many employers recognize this need, far more companies still seem to struggle with the idea of taking care of their employees in this regard.
Re-opening your business during a pandemic can be a terrifying thought. There are different aspects of business – as well as how a lockdown has affected everyone – in order to be aptly prepared to re-open your doors. A huge question seems to be in regards to employees: how can we best take care of our company’s family?
Many businesses right now are re-opening but it’s sometimes difficult to find a way to get the word out. Pandemic or not, business big and small often struggle with finding just the right way that they are opening or re-opening…No matter the situation, when you are having trouble marketing face-to-face, you may need to find other ways to advertise.
There were blood draws, various radiation-based tests, and even a spinal tap done in an effort to figure out what was going on with me. It was pretty terrifying. But the one thing I remember most was that the nurses on each of those nights were kind, helpful, and comforting.
With so many businesses being put on standby – whether because of financial difficulties or being temporarily shut down – people are banding together in an effort to help. We are all starting to learn who is actually essential in running things throughout the country, who is willing to help others, and the importance of business support. Waiters, bartenders, physical trainers, school teachers, and many others are currently trying to figure out how to make ends meet.
Today, I sit in my home for the third week, anxiously awaiting the day that the stay-at-home order (due to COVID-19) is lifted. As it is, there is at least the rest of this month left of being at home, people working remotely, children learning through online classes, and only “essential” businesses and activities being permitted. While we all sit and wait, people are beginning to deal with regular panic attacks and depression. So what can we do to help stifle the negative energy that is surrounding us during these trying times?
Most of us are working from home; the spouses of essential employees hope that nothing is brought into their homes; and many schools have been cancelled through the end of the school year. Parents are being thrust into homeschooling their kids, many of who have no idea how to do this – especially while being a working parent.
