CIPD Mid West Region hosted a recent session where attendees heard how the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic has led to uncertainty and a myriad of new challenges for many of us. Employers are increasingly worried about the wellbeing issues presented as a result of the pandemic.

One of the biggest challenges for businesses who have moved to a remote working strategy is how to support their employees’ wellbeing. The session aimed to provide a set of take-aways that HR professionals can use to provide this support.
