The global pandemic that is COVID-19 has left employees feeling vulnerable, stressed out, and anxious in their daily lives. Prudential Africa recognises that without good mental wellness, a workforce can crumble under daily pressures and stress. We have embarked on a campaign that focuses on workplace mental wellness as a crucial factor in Africa’s recovery from COVID-19 as well as an essential factor in employee happiness.
The emotional wellbeing solutions setup for employees aim to build awareness around mental health, opening up the conversation around it, as well as employing practical functions such as flexi-hours and access to off-site councilors. Prudential cares for its employees and will be actively engaging staff and customers in our new mental health options and solutions.
