Staff Wellbeing During Covid



In times of uncertainty and physical isolation, connect your staff through a series of online programs we have specifically developed to respond to the Covid-19 period. These programs are designed to boost morale, calm nerves, and facilitate an effective approach to new workplace scenarios.

Key Benefits include:

  • Opportunity for participants to have a meaningful shared experience
  • Validate/normalise staff experiences and anxieties
  • Promote a collaborative problem-solving approach
  • Opportunity for participants to improve coping skills and strengthen resilience
  • Promote teamwork and engagement at this challenging time

All services are conducted via Zoom which allows for a shared and interactive experience.

Program 1: Wellbeing in the face of COVID-19

1 hour via Zoom
Up to 15 participants

This facilitated workshop draws together aspects of our Mindfulness, Wellbeing & Resilience programs to create a theoretical platform from which to come together and build practical and specific strategies to address the anxiety we all feel in the face of the Covid-19 crisis.

Program 2: Building Resilience

1 hour via Zoom (longer, more in-depth options also available)
Up to 15 participants

Resilience can be defined as one’s capacity to successfully adapt to challenging situations or change. Resilience is not simply an inbuilt mechanism – it can be taught and it can be strengthened. This short workshop introduces participants to a range of strategies designed to build resilience and is perhaps more important now than ever before. Read more about our Resilience programs here.

Program 3: Mental Health Awareness

1 hour – 2 hours via Zoom 
Up to 15 participants

Studies are clear that mental health issues associated with the stress and anxiety of the Covid-19 pandemic are on the rise, and further exacerbated by the current lockdowns in place in large parts of the country. It is therefore essential that now, more than ever before, your managers and staff are equipped to recognise the signs of mental illness, know how to reach out, and how to offer the right kind of assistance.

Program 4: Thriving at Home: Adapting to your WFH Environment

1 hour via Zoom
Up to 15 participants

Designed for organisations whose staff are now largely working from home, this program aims to bring your staff together for a facilitated discussion about their new working environment. Participants will be able to share their specific concerns and anxieties, address the needs of their teams, and together develop a framework to enhance their productivity and positivity whilst working in physical isolation. Topics may include: creative approaches to online communication, staying connected, when & how to take a break, motivating & managing your team remotely, emotional resilience and positive thinking. This program can be adapted to workplaces who are offering flexible/hybrid working solutions, or who are looking to support their staff to return to work at the office.

Program 5: Stay Calm & Connected with Weekly Meditation Sessions

20 mins via Zoom
Up to 40 participants

Forget the water-cooler! In these unprecedented times, take 20 minutes out of your working day to meet together and de-stress with a guided meditation by one of our expert mindfulness practitioners.

The training was very well received. Sherisse was outstanding and very accommodating to the company’s needs. Feedback from the workers was positive and it was encouraging that workers on the factory floor were more open to discuss mental health and the impacts of COVID-19” Reozone Sept 2020.

“We have done several training programs with Associated Employee Assistance Providers and have always found the service and consultation of an extremely high standard.”

Toni Williams, L&D Consultant, Sydney Opera House

“Katherine presented to our team of 40 staff at our annual staff symposium and it was absolutely fantastic. Katherine was engaging and really helped all staff members relate better to each other. We were so impressed we wanted her back for a conference of 150 medical practice managers which also went really well. Very happy with the resources provided by Associated Employee Assistance Providers who helped arranged both the above plus follow up articles. Highly recommended.”
