Almost a year into the pandemic, with lockdowns and furlough now part of everyday life, it’s easy to assume that we understand it – that we’ve got the measure of Covid, and it’s now just a case of enduring until the vaccine rollout is complete.
But if there’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s that things are rarely so straightforward; our recovery – economic, social, physical and mental – will be far from linear. We are yet to see the full impact of this pandemic.
We asked 1,600 employees and HR leaders across England about their workplace health and wellbeing. With this research, we set out to quantify the impact that a year of risk, worry and change has had on our wellbeing and how that in turn affects the workplace.
