Return To Work: How to be The Hero During a Mass Disaster [Pt 2]

Join us for the second in a series of three video interviews on the importance of mental health support

This NEW workbook serves as a guide to the new challenges we are all experiencing as a result of COVID-19 as well as how to prepare for what’s next.

The stages of a mass disaster start with a life disrupting impact. With COVID, we moved quickly to the heroic phase where everyone pitched in working long hours and living off of adrenaline. This stage normally lasts a few days to a few weeks but we are much further along. Now the workforce is stressed and showing signs of fatigue and burnout.
In this second 28-minute video interview with authors Rex Miller and Dr Jeff Jernigan, we address these key concerns and more including:
  1. Overstressed workers will shut down or act out, increasing costs related to discipline issues, lawsuits, and turnover.
  2. Managers will burn out, being unprepared to handle the added burden of their team members’ emotional needs.
  3. Companies will see increased mental health and medical costs from the stress, disruption, and dislocation of the pandemic.

The first video explores why COVID needs to be handled like a mass disaster recovery and can be watched below.

Stay tuned! We conclude this series with the third installment which covers how companies can prepare managers for the new demands and provide mental health support to their employees.
