Workplace Mental Health: When your Workplace Becomes your Home

The COVID-19 crisis has had a major impact on the way we work. Most of us are teleworking, managing major projects remotely, and working with virtual teams. To encourage social interactions, some teams even hold virtual happy hours, tea socials or coffee breaks. Over the past weeks working from home, the line between life and work has blurred significantly, especially for those who must also take on more responsibilities on the home front. How do home-based-workers navigate these distractions and the disconnection brought about by this distance working?

Join us at our next Telfer Forum entitled Workplace Mental Health: When your Workplace becomes your Home. Four experts will share evidence-based and practical insights around the challenges of working from home during the Covid-19 crisis, including mental health, work-life balance, and virtual team dynamics. This online Telfer Forum will be held on May 6th, from 12 to 1 p.m. EST.

Everyone is welcome. Feel free to extend this invitation to anyone who can benefit from the thoughts and advice of our expert panel!
