Mutual aid at work – Fostering caring cultures as we emerge from lockdown
Our collective experience over the past year has often been
described as a storm, that sure feels like the case but it is clear we have not
all been in the same boat. Each of us has had their own unique journey. We have
dealt with everything from illness, stress, loss of a loved one through to
isolation and exhaustion and the joys of home learning. Inevitably, these
feelings and experiences will have influenced our mental health. At the same
time there has been a surge of mutual aid and support within our communities to
try and ease the effects of our collective trauma, bringing light and
positivity to our lives.
The government has laid out its road map so that chunks of
our lives will slowly reopen, including our places of work, culture, and
entertainment. But for some the thought of this can be anxiety inducing, having
been told to stay distanced from people for so long and still dealing with the
effects of their own lockdown journey.
In this latest Cultivator webinar, we will be discussing how
we as employers can embrace the well-being led examples of mutual aid and
positive support. We will look at how we build this into our organisational
structures and think about what we can do to support employees, freelancers,
customers, and clients as they return to our spaces.
Join us after the session for an informal chat to continue
the conversation and to find out more about our Inclusion and Innovation strand
of the Cultivator programme.
