How Can Wellness Of Employee Be Improved After COVID-19

Post COVID-19: Employee Wellness

I have been grateful for the collegiality at work more than ever before post COVID-19. It has made us appreciated the blessing of being able to work, gain the satisfaction of contributing to our community, family and more. The pandemic lead to global lockdown and isolation, it has raised the fear of what will happen next fuelled by uncertainty. Instead of going into the debate of the virus size, mode of transmission, COVID-19 safety policy and procedures. I decided to share a few simple steps to be taken to improve staff wellness at any workplace.

Most importantly we are all responsible our own wellbeing and the health of our loved ones and those who we work with.  So you have the control over the future:

  • Assess your own health, if you feel unwell (have fever, cough, shortness of breath); call your healthcare provider. Please do not go to work and observe social distancing at home.
  • Every morning enjoy the sunlight, feel the privilege of being able to go to work (not being in isolation); gratitude is essential for our wellbeing.
  • When entering the workplace ensure that you follow the health and safety rules, clean your hands as frequently as required by alcohol based hand gel or soap and water.
  • Maintain social distancing throughout the day.
  • Initiate positive conversations
  • Try to avoid unnecessary conversation or forwarding messages on social media about uncertainty of the future related to COVID-19, economical forecast, job security and work place gossips.
  • When you come home, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Try to have 1 to 2 hours of interaction with family and friends; either in person or through social media preferably verbal communication.
  • Enjoy life, eat healthy, do exercise, keep a positive attitude, and sleep (around 8 hrs).
  • Make sure you do something that brings you joy every day.
