No matter how we slice it, the return to in-person work can be stressful. Some companies are easing the transition with hybrid work environments. While this approach has some big benefits, challenges remain. In the face of high burnout and employee turnover rates, employee mental health needs to be a priority as the modern day workplace evolves.
Employees have sustained an enormous amount of change in both their personal and professional lives and need support as they continue to flex with hybrid work environments — many for the first time ever. One survey involving nearly 13,000 employees from 28 different countries found that 55% of employees experienced stress related to changes in their work routines during the pandemic. In some cases, working from home during a pandemic and fluctuating economy may have exacerbated existing struggles with depression, insomnia, alcoholism, obesity, smoking, and other health-related challenges. Others may be experiencing significant anxiety about an eventual return to the office.
