A digital fireside chat with Christine Warner at Worldline
No matter what your industry or job role, the pandemic has had some sort of effect on the wellbeing of every single one of us. Whether we’ve faced physical wellbeing challenges while on lockdown, emotional stresses due to being furloughed, anxiety around still going into work for key workers, adjusting to working from home and home schooling, or – in the worst cases – grieving for lost friends or family, everyone’s wellbeing has been touched by Covid-19.
Employers have had to respond and take responsibility for the wellbeing of their people. We’re joined by Christine Warner, Head of HR for Worldline, who talks to us about how lockdown has acted as a catalyst for their employee wellbeing plans, and how she and her team plan to ensure the psychological safety and physical wellbeing of their employees as they start to return to work.
