In support of Mental Health Month, as employers continue to grapple with COVID-19 uncertainties and safeguarding their employees' wellbeing, Lincoln Financial Group (LNC) - Get Lincoln National Corporation (LNC) Report has launched an online collection of resources from the company's wellness experts, including a series of podcasts on maintaining one's mental health during the pandemic.
Stay-at-home orders, isolation from friends and family, job concerns and market volatility have led to an increase in stress and anxiety and made an already uncertain situation more difficult. More than one-third of Americans said they are worried about their mental health due to the COVID-19 situation 1. While the majority of employers have transitioned to remote work environments to ensure the physical health of their employees, the effects on mental health are just as important to assess.
"As the effects of the global pandemic continue to alter our daily lives, Lincoln Financial remains committed to providing guidance and education to help employers ensure the safety of their workforce," said Eric Reisenwitz, interim president, Group Protection, Lincoln Financial Group. "Our wellness experts have created a host of multimedia resources and materials to guide businesses and help them prepare and navigate through a rapidly-evolving environment."
As a leading provider of workplace benefits like short- and long-term disability and leave management, Lincoln Financial's featured mental health content includes guidance for staying engaged with a remote workforce, best practices for employers, and a series of podcasts from the organization's wellness experts.
