  • New England health services company offers tips on addressing worker burnout
  • Assessing employees’ mental health can be more challenging with remote work setups
  • Steps employers can take to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues and better address employee needs

Summary by Dirk Langeveld

Many workplaces have been relying on remote setups for more than a year now, and employees have been facing increased stress due to social isolation, concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, and other issues. The health services company HarvardPilgrim HealthCare says it can be difficult to assess employees’ mental health without interpersonal interaction, but that employers can still take steps to provide a more supportive environment.

These steps include:

  • Offering trainings, promoting open dialogue, and other efforts to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues
  • Using employee resource groups and other feedback to better understand employees’ needs
  • Finding employee pain points that need to be addressed and developing strategies to address them, such as allowing for more flexible schedules
  • Supporting employees in need, even if they only represent a minority of the workforce
