I’m sure that we’re all in agreement as we enter week 5 and face at least a few more weeks in lockdown staring at the same four walls and surroundings, that even the strongest of us may struggle in some way. And this is the same for your staff. 

For me, this involves becoming increasingly over-invested in a project I took on to entertain my son of growing butterflies from caterpillars (they’ve basically replaced my work colleagues!) I may have a nervous breakdown if I have to release them into the world whilst we remain in lockdown! 

During our favourite part of our long days, which is on the phone supporting clients, several of them have mentioned their concerns for keeping in touch with their teams and their general welfare. With members of your team likely to be working from home or furloughed, they are missing out on the normal and necessary social interactions at work that are all part of what makes us human. 

As a business owner we want to be sure this situation isn’t affecting people in the wrong way which isn’t as easy to do remotely.

Communication is key in promoting positivity so we’ve pulled together some ideas from Mind into a template, which we have shared with our staff and thought we’d send it onto you too.

You can send this out to your staff as it is or adapt it to suit your business and your style. We don’t mind. You may also need to adjust this depending on whether your employees are working from home or have been furloughed. Either way, hopefully your staff will appreciate you keeping in touch and caring about their mental wellbeing. 

And hopefully you’ll all be back some time soon working together in a successful and profitable business!
