2021 is turning out to be another year full of major transitions. As we come through the pandemic, the impact of working from home, social isolation, remote learning, and loss of loved ones, is causing a spike in divorces.
Divorce is ranked the #2 life stressor – just after death of a spouse. It impacts mental and physical health, family, finances, career, and our sense of belonging and community. It also affects the bottom line for companies, through increased absenteeism, distractedness, rates of depression, heart attack, family violence, alcohol abuse, and more. It’s clear that supporting employees in their personal – not just professional lives – enables them to live well and perform at a higher level. So what can you do to help?
