How to Help Employees Manage Stress During COVID-19


To say that Covid-19 has rocked the U.S. economy is an understatement. Every day, we read headlines about how quickly the coronavirus is spreading, the rising death toll, and how more and more employees are losing their jobs.  For businesses still operating and those who just opened, there’s plenty of workplace stress due to COVID-19, from adapting to new working arrangements, having the kids home, employees getting sick, and much more. It can be difficult for employees to manage their stress and anxiety amid COVID-19. Managers and HR professionals can play an important role in helping employees cope with the added stress and uncertainties of the pandemic.
In this presentation, we’ll help you to understand the stress that employees may be experiencing and provide stress and anxiety management strategies and tools that can help all of us to get through this challenging time.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the difference between good vs. bad stress
  • Learn remote and onsite common stressors and recommend coping strategies
