Pre-Covid, establishing a mentally healthy workplace was already high on the boardroom agenda. How much more so now, with the almost endless list of stress and worry that this pandemic has brought to all. Employees working from home are feeling isolated and having to use unfamiliar technology, often with great family pressures; whilst furloughed employees feel their job security is threatened. Those back in the office are fearful of their increased risk of contracting the virus and all amidst a constantly changing and uncertain economic climate. If business is continue and thrive, employers must support their workforce.
A comprehensive virtual half-day interactive conference that combines the necessary medical, HR, risk mitigation, legal and operational elements into a robust management plan. In-depth expert presentations feature dedicated sessions to address delegate questions, challenges and concerns. Full resources, including downloads, handouts and reference material will be provided.

Why Attend?
Learn from BFI's two decades of pandemic planning training, with a specific focus on the current Covid-19 pandemic
Previous pandemics such as Avian Flu and SARS did not necessitate such extreme global social distancing and lock-down measures; your employees, working in completely unfamiliar circumstances, will be struggling to adapt
Your staff are feeling isolated, vulnerable and afraid -they are home-schooling, working remotely, using unfamiliar technology and dealing with unforeseen caring roles and job uncertainty
A plethora of speculation around a rapidly-evolving research field, means employers need to work to disseminate truthful information calmly, discouraging panic and rumour.
There are also issues arising around the return to work and how employees need to be supported through leaving furlough and being comfortable returning to the workplace, as well as ensuring those who are made redundant are also adequately cared for. 

An expert speaker line-up will address the challenges employers are facing and deliver workable, practical and effective strategies to identify and manage potential mental health challenges on your workforce.

In-depth sessions are complemented by interactive opportunities to have your personal concerns addressed and network with fellow professionals facing the same challenges.
