The Covid-19 pandemic is directly affecting the health of the U.S. workforce. And as we continue to navigate these tough times, we will begin to see indirect effects on the overall health of the workforce across our nation. There are major disruptions in worksites across the U.S., and in some cases, businesses are shuttering their doors. Individuals may be experiencing more stress due to changes in their work life, uncertainty in job stability, or unemployment. In addition to the stress experienced by the workforce, people may not have access to the resources they normally utilize to maintain their health.
Here at the Center for Workforce Health, we want to support worksites across the country by providing the tools and resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle during these difficult times.
We will be offering the Taking Charge program FREE of charge for a limited time to worksites interested in supporting the health of their employees. Taking Charge is a smartphone-based, wellness program for adults that includes a robust Stress Management component. Contact email@example.com for more information.
In addition, we are starting the Health Bits series at the Center for Workforce Health blog. Health Bits will include regular articles on various health topics and strategies and tips that promote health during the pandemic.
