Mental Health and the Remote Workplace: Prioritising the wellbeing of home workers

Avoid bad hires

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing unprecedented demands on us, as business leaders. The extent of the problem is not yet understood. The long-term impact of emergency measures remains unknown. How long itwill last remains an open question. We are seeing some evidence of reactive response in the businesses we encounter; unclear directions, uncertain policies and flip-flop decisions, to name a few examples.

The differing reactions of businesses around the world show that the slower and less effective the response, the greater the risk of prolonging the economic, political and social consequences of COVID-19. In case of doubt, now is the time to take up the mantle of leading through change. The focus must be on impact on leaders to respond deliberately, rather than merely “react” to the situation. The reality is that the Future of Work is already upon us. If there is any legacy that comes from COVID-19 it is this; uncertainty is the new constant and leaders must embrace sustainable practices that future-proof their businesses from crises to come.

Robert Walters has partnered with changeosity, a Dubai-based business consultancy and, with their co-founder, Kiran Scarr, we share advice on what it takes to lead remote teams in the time of COVID-19.

Topics of the webinar:
