During the height of the pandemic, grief, loss, and fear were the predominate feelings that for many are still unresolved. Despite the nation’s efforts to reintroduce normalcy, the way we live and do business has forever been changed. As the nation rebuilds and recovers, the need for employers to develop trauma-informed policies and procedures will be imperative to the success of their wellness, productivity, and engagement. This workshop will focus on post-pandemic management of mental health and policy-driven responses to support employees experiencing post-COVID stress. Participants will: ● Understand the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on employees and organizational leaders. ● Explore the role of wellness and how this impacts workplace performance. ● Learn to identify trauma-informed policies and procedures within their organization. ● Develop a plan of support to assist employees returning to the work environment post-pandemic.
