Managing Employment Relationships and COVID-19 For The UK-Ghana Chamber Of Commerce
Covid-19 has clearly brought significant challenges to the care sector. However, not only has it affected the running of care services and the provision of care, but has also had a considerable psychological impact on employee wellbeing.
Care is one of the sectors where, due to the nature of the services provided, operations have to continue working throughout this pandemic and this has brought many challenges. Workplace policies and procedures have had to change rapidly in a short period of time to ensure the safety of employees, service users and their loved ones. As well as the physical and operational considerations, the significant psychological impact of the pandemic – particularly of those people working within the care sector – should be handled carefully.
