Dr Colinda Linde’s top advice for employers and employees managing the return to the workplace
In her latest podcast for Discovery, Clinical Psychologist Dr Colinda Linde speaks to employers and employees about dealing with the very real fears, anxieties and discomfort people have around returning to the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic. How does a leaders’s anxiety filter down to employees? And how do feelings of anxiety and insecurity affect employees personally and also their ability to work? How should leaders help employees to adjust to working from the office again? Why is it critical to explain how the business is working to safeguard employee health (especially to high-risk staff or those who have vulnerable family members)? Why is sharing information around decision-making and planning key to helping employees to feel included and safe? Why is ensuring staff connectivity key? Dr Linde speaks to key aspects of business preparedness and business continuity in the time of COVID-19.
