A poll of HR decision-makers has found six in 10 (63%) employers have increased support to staff across one or more areas of mental, financial, physical and social wellbeing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, with mental health considered the top priority.
The survey, carried out on behalf of industry body Group Risk Development (GRiD), polled 505 HR decision-makers and found that half of businesses had increased communication on available support for staff during the pandemic.
