Mental and physical health often go hand in hand, and keeping active is a great idea to support your immune system too. 

Online ways of working out mean that you can get your fit fix without having to leave the house. They’re particularly good if you, or any of your employees are self-isolating or in quarantine.

Online workout ideas

Our Royal Bank Business Hub has put together some ideas for ways to workout at home. The list of online resources includes ideas for homeschoolers, gym lovers and people who don’t have time to exercise.

Coping with grief or bereavement

Coronavirus has caused thousands of deaths around the world and most people are likely to have either been affected themselves, or know someone who has.

You or your employees may have faced the loss of a spouse, relative, colleague or friend as a result of covid-19.

As an employer, it can be difficult to know what to say or do in these circumstances. In some cases, there may be a significant time delay between the loss and the start of the grieving process.

Being able to seek advice and offer appropriate resources to employees is important. Here we've provided some resources that you may find useful.

Counselling support for bereavement

Your employees might simply need someone to talk to if someone close to them has died. Cruse provides support throughout the grieving process by phone, email and on their website.

Counselling through Cruse

Time off for bereavement

Grief affects everyone differently and being sensitive to that as an employer is important. LRA provides guidance for employers to help you understand what you can do and how you can support your employees.
