Leaders are focused on the covid-19 crisis right now. Business models are pivoting, staff are working differently and productivity is being looked at in a new way.

On a personal level, as humans, we can handle change but don’t do so well with uncertainty. And there is no doubt about it, uncertainty is the enemy of good mental health. In fact since the outbreak of the pandemic, 75% of people say they feel more socially isolated, 67% of people report higher stress, 57% are feeling greater anxiety, and 53% say they feel more emotionally exhausted, according to a global study of over 2,700 employees across more than 10 industries undertaken by Qualtrics and SAP during March and April 2020.
Business owners and managers need to know what might be affecting their teams and how better to manage them.

Pulse surveys are one of the best tools to divine this critical information. 

We suggest, if good mental health is important to your organisation then getting ahead of the trends and pro-actively manage emerging sentiment doesn’t just make good sense but may well prevent future psychological injury.
