Rewind to a year ago, January 2020, we couldn’t have imagined the year to turn out how it did. Coronavirus not only threatened our physical health, but also our mental health as we were confined to our homes for months. This presented a new challenge for employers to help support their employees wellbeing in uncertain times, and completely remotely.
It was, and still remains, more important than ever for us to support our team through this time and we did so through regular check-ins, mental health talks, creating a wellbeing channel on Slack to share tips and resources, sending out mental health packs from Mind in the post to encouraging movement challenges, introducing even more flexible working hours and more to support our team with the ups and downs that the pandemic as thrown at us.
That’s why being recognised for the this award following last year feels all the more significant, and we’re extremely proud of everyone at Found for adapting quickly and looking after themselves, as well as each other.
