    We are amid unusual and unpredictable times with Covid. Work/life balance has taken on a whole new meaning because of it. How do HR leaders help their employees with sensitive issues? Well, look no further than SHRM SOCT.

    Because of its fluid nature and indefinite duration, COVID-19 pandemic continues to present new challenges. People everywhere are grappling with how to adjust to perpetual changes in their lives at work, at home, and in their community, while balancing added anxiety, fear, and the emotional challenges related to loss. Wheeler EAP will share information that can help us consciously reduce stress, boost our resilience, improve our emotional well-being, and cope with the uncharted road ahead.

    Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) can help. From reducing absenteeism, workers' compensation claims, health care costs, accidents, and grievances, they can also address safety and security issues, improve employee productivity and engagement, and reduce costs related to employee turnover.

    Your employees’ lives have changed. Let’s discuss how you help!

    Topics Include:

    • What have we done to support employees during transitions to working from home and returning to the workplace
    • What stress reduction approaches has your organization promoted and which ones are you currently practicing
    • How have we managed grief and loss during these uncertain times

    • How have we managed the challenges of parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic

    Dan will lead the way in taking us through these strategies and tools that can help your employees cope and thrive!
