Series Overview

The global pandemic has awoken our shared consciousness to the importance of wellbeing in the workplace. In the era of remote and hybrid working, it is more important than ever for employers to identify their employees’ needs and to offer a working environment that caters to a diverse range of lived experiences.

Heart disease is the biggest killer worldwide, and in the US alone, half of the population is at risk. The pandemic has exacerbated this, with lockdowns and the general decrease in social activities causing many to take up much less healthy lifestyles. As a result, it has never been more important for employers to be aware of the causes of heart disease and to integrate support and mitigation strategies into their employee benefits models.

Which is why, in this three-part series, One Drop is inviting HR/benefit leaders and heart disease specialists to share their insights into the future of employee wellbeing and to give you a blueprint for offering employees support with their heart health.

In Episode 1, you’ll discover how employees’ heart health impacts the business bottom line and learn mitigation and support strategies you can integrate into your development strategy to protect against the risks of poor heart health. In Episode 2, you’ll hear about the impact of the pandemic on people with diabetes and explore support strategies you can employ to help support employees and mitigate the long-term risks of ‘lockdown weight gain. In Episode 3, you’ll learn about the relationship between self esteem, and productivity, and get fool-proof strategies you can employ to encourage confidence and self-esteem across the company.

Watch the series to get the tools you need to protect your team’s health and wellbeing in the post-covid world.

Aside from the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus, a recent poll by the American Psychological Association suggests that stress, trauma and changes to lifestyle are causing immense strain on our mental and physical health, and could trigger a secondary health crisis.

For many, the stress of the pandemic has resulted in unintentional weight gain. A recent report by the American Psychological Association found that 42% of US adults gained an average of 29 pounds last year, and while weight gain in and of itself is not unhealthy, excess weight can increase the risk of developing chronic health conditions, like heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

As we start to move into the ‘new normal,’ employers need to be aware of the emotional and physical toll that the pandemic has caused. Adapting benefits packages to help employees with weight gain and management of chronic conditions are examples of the steps employers can take to acknowledge and tackle the difficulties employees are facing.

In Episode 2 of One Drop’s series “The future of employee wellbeing: adapting benefits to the new normal ,” we’re tackling the issue of post-covid weight gain and exploring strategies employers can use to develop a benefits program that helps employees prevent and manage chronic conditions.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Lockdown weight-gain: why should employers care?
  • The human and financial cost of diabetes management and how it’s impacting your bottom line
  • Adapting benefits programmes to offer more support to employees with chronic conditions
  • And more.
Mental health, chronic conditions & the pandemic: a guide for employers

The global pandemic has been a major source of stress for many of us. The uncertainty and loneliness of repeated and sustained lockdowns, coupled with the threat of the virus have triggered a major rise in depression and anxiety across the global population.

A recent survey by the American Psychological Association revealed that 78% of respondents said the pandemic was a major stressor for them, with 9% of respondents having been diagnosed with a mental health disorder since the start of the pandemic. As healthcare costs continue to rise and access to medical care remains a challenge, we are at a critical point with respect to US mental health.

People with chronic conditions often suffer from low self-esteem. Adapting to life with a long-term health condition and dealing with the associated stigma can seriously damage a person’s sense of self-worth. The National Association for Self-Esteem describes good self-esteem as “the experience of being capable of meeting life’s challenges and being worthy of happiness.” For employers, failing to support people with chronic conditions and those struggling with mental health means missing out on the full potential that employees have to offer.

In Episode 3 of One Drop’s series “The future of employee wellbeing: adapting benefits to the new normal,” we’re discussing the impact of the global pandemic on mental health in the US and exploring steps employers can take to mitigate the effects for employees with chronic conditions.

Discussion points include:

  • The impact of covid-19 on national mental health
  • Detangling the relationship between self-esteem, chronic conditions and employee productivity
  • Offering personalised benefits packages to help manage chronic conditions and mental health
  • And more.
