One in five employees say they are struggling to cope with Covid-19 restrictions and 26 per cent disclosed that their mental health has deteriorated due to the pandemic, according to new employee research for Group Risk Development (Grid).
The research, undertaken during January 2021, showed that 76 per cent of employees, to the best of their knowledge, had not had Covid-19, but 13 per cent said they had contracted the virus and 11 per cent were ‘not sure’. Of those who have had the virus, 46 per cent, said they were struggling to recover.
Grid says this highlights the importance of ensuring swift access to health and wellbeing benefits to minimise the impact on the individual.
