We need to prioritise employee mental health as offices reopen | City Pantry

This Mental Health Awareness Week our People Partner Rosie Hyam talks about the need to prioritise employees' mental health as offices begin to reopen.

Over the past few weeks, we've seen more and more of our customers re-opening their offices after a long period of employees working from home. In fact, we'll be opening our office back up with limited capacity at the end of this month too (government advice-permitting)! And while some of our people are raring to get back to it, it's understandable that others are more apprehensive. That's why we as People Teams and HR need to put employee mental health at the forefront when planning for office returns.
