Only three months ago, COVID-19 was not even on the radar screen for most of us in the US. Now daily life – at work, at home and in our community – has changed dramatically. Employers are still in the rapid-learning mode, struggling to figure out what is best for our people and our companies and how to get that work done. In the scramble to respond to the crisis, employers have understandably had to prioritize. In an ongoing Mercer survey, 28% of the nearly 500 US employers that have responded to date said they have introduced new programs specific to employee mental health since the pandemic began. For many, however, analyzing the impact on employees’ mental health and providing additional support is still on the list of things to do. At this point, we would argue that it needs immediate attention.
