Dealing with Anxiety when Returning to Work in Northern Ireland

About this course

As COVID-19 restrictions ease and staff begin to return to the workplace across Northern Ireland, it is more important than ever that your staff are equipped to deal with the feelings of anxiety that this change may bring.

Whether you have employees returning to work from furlough or returning to the workplace after working from home, it is important that your staff have an understanding of what anxiety is and the knowledge of how to deal with their own levels of anxiety as they return to work.

Legal Island has created a 45-minute eLearning course to support your employees when returning to work as COVID-19 restrictions ease and workplaces begin to reopen.


What is the Anxiety?

Anxiety is a normal reaction to many different kinds of events and situations in our lives. It is one of our internal warning systems.

In Northern Ireland, the NHS cites anxiety as:

“A feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.”.

Did you know: 

Almost half (45 per cent) of furloughed workers are anxious about their return to work, according to recruiter Randstad. In a recent poll of almost 8,000 workers from across the UK, Randstad found that those in Northern Ireland were the most anxious (50 per cent).


What is the purpose of this course?

This course is designed to help whether employees are returning to the workplace after working from home or returning to work from furlough.
