Workplace Resilience Survey
When we first realized that COVID-19 pandemic restrictions like social distancing, limited capacities and remote working were becoming the new normal, individuals were encouraged to find new ways of bolstering their mental health and overall well-being amidst these changes. However, it can be challenging to sustain that type of positivity for the long-term, leading to fatigue and frustration.

At work, there are ways that employers can help the mental health of their employees as well. A 2021 workplace resilience survey from WELCOA and Unmind states that “86% of employers are offering flexible work options as a strategy for combating burnout, but only 31% of employees feel like their employer has taken steps to support their mental health.”
