HR Wire - Quarter of employees say mental health has deteriorated

The mental repercussions of lockdown and the virus itself not only impact the individual but can also have consequences for others, warns GRiD.

A quarter of employees have disclosed that their mental health has deteriorated due to the pandemic, while 20% say they are struggling to cope with Covid-19 restrictions, according to new research from GRiD. 

The survey of 1,216 workers, undertaken during January 2021, also showed that 76% of employees, to the best of their knowledge, had not had Covid-19, but 13% said they had contracted the virus and 11% were “not sure”. Of those who have had the virus, 46% said they were still struggling to recover. 

According to GRiD, the findings “only stand to highlight the importance of ensuring swift access to health and wellbeing benefits to minimise the impact on the individual”.
