Best takeaway from an employee resource group: Utilize your EAP to offer group webinars. Mental health needs have reached an urgent stage as employees cope with illness, child-care needs, isolation, anxiety and stress during covid and beyond. The sessions, which included Balancing Work and Life, Managing Worry and Anxiety, and Coping During Uncertain Times were well received with impressive participation rates.
