KEEPING BURNOUT AT BAY – PART 2
Monday 11 January 2021
Burnout can impact individual and team performance, as well as the health of today’s workforce. To help you avoid burnout while working from home, here are three steps recommended by experts
1. Ask for help
At UniCredit, the wellbeing and mental health of our colleagues is of the utmost importance. The services and programs offered help to manage stress-induced work situations and help with preventive measures. For example, Bank Austria offers preventative care and initiatives, such as psychological counselling and crisis support. All are encouraged to use digital counselling sessions, as well as an app called elemental to promote mindfulness and meditation.
2. Respect boundaries
UniCredit has created a Family Board to propose solutions for people’s needs in terms of flexibility, working hours, guidance for remote teams, as well as practical support for parents and carers. Our objective is to create a safe, kind work culture to support our employees.
3. Focus on what is important
UniCredit offers psychological support – anytime, anywhere. Employees can utilise the Employee Assistant Program, which offers a psychological support hotline for employees and family members. Professionals will provide free and confidential psychological assistance, respecting privacy and anonymity rights.
A recent UniCredit survey showed that employees are interested in giving feedback on their direct manager's support and thoughts on future the future of a work-life balance. UniCredit will use the results to come up with new solutions fitting with all employees' needs.
