Over six in 10 (63%) employers have increased their support to staff across one or more areas of mental, financial, physical and social wellbeing in light of the ongoing pandemic, according to research amongst HR decision-makers undertaken on behalf of GRiD.
Half (50%) of these businesses increased the communications around support available to staff , while 44% increased the time they made available to help staff directly. A further 38% extended support to reflect changes requested by employees, while 34% increased engagement and utilisation of support that was already available.
In addition, GriD found that 32% increased time to investigate resources to help staff, while the same percentage extended support to include employees’ families.
