Resources for Supporting Employee Wellbeing

We originally posted Resources for Supporting Employee Wellbeing back in May 2020 when lockdown was in full swing.  It’s clear that employers are continuing to provide support to employees in regard to the last 2 years of living with a pandemic’s effects.  Partially due to the employer’s duty of care, that it’s supportive of employee engagement and part of the generally increased wellbeing strategy. So we have updated our suggested resources for 2022.
