The extreme measures put in place to limit the spread of coronavirus have transformed the workplace as never before. Entire workforces now have to work from home, people who had work to do one day have been suddenly furloughed, with nothing to do the next, and entire industries have been ground to a halt.

The impact of this on the mental health of the workforce is not to be underestimated. While we naturally grapple with the technicalities of getting to grips with the new ways of working now necessitated, it’s important that we don’t overlook the psychological impact this is having on employees and managers, or fail to put measures in place to help them cope.
