If there is one thing we can predict right now, it’s that the future is uncertain. COVID-19 has certainly brought with it an unprecedented amount of challenges and difficulties that have resulted in a different way of working. But what does the new way of working mean to your lone workers and how can you help them?
The Loneworker Live event, which takes place virtually on the 13th October has expert advice on hand to share with you.
Here we discuss the 3 main reasons why this insightful conference is a must in understanding the impact COVID-19 has and is having on lone workers, as we look towards tomorrow...
1) Keeping you up to date
With so many changes happening at the moment it is hard to keep abreast of them all. This can be overwhelming! The #LWSLive has been designed to highlight and dissect all of the latest information from the HSE, as well as expert advice from speakers, to put you in the know. They will share their experience and explain the changes they have had to make during the pandemic.
2) Is it time to change focus?
They say change is as good as a rest... but this doesn’t mean it is easy to do! Unfortunately, COVID-19 is making us look at how we operate on a whole new level and businesses are having to adapt in order to survive. Join Jayne Crow, from the Co-operative Group as she gives an insightful view about how the Co-op has changed its focus and approach to lone working.
3) Understanding the mental toll and feeling of loneliness
Remote/lone workers lack human interaction and in stay-at-home Britain this feeling of loneliness can be especially acute. Knowing how to support and consider your lone workers wellbeing and mental health is paramount when your workforce is divorced from its familiar environment.
Leyla from Diverse Minds UK will be explaining the mental health and wellbeing considerations for long term lone workers and those who manage them.
Not only will you be able to join in and get involved, it’s virtual, so you will be able to make as many cups of tea as needed!
