  • Work from Home Covid 19

    We are living and working in an increasingly unknown territory. No one quite knows how the COVID-19 virus will play out in the long run but what is becoming increasingly clear is this - many organisations are on the edge of mandatory working from home.

    Even before the outbreak of Covid-19 and the global pandemic, workplace anxiety was gaining recognition as a significant issue for organisations to manage. Mental health charity MIND reported that 1 in 6 workers are dealing with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, or stress. These conditions can stop people from performing at their best if employers don’t take steps to understand and manage the issues.

    We are often asked how we know when someone is ready for personal development. Of course, people can develop at any point in their lives, but people often want to know how they can be sure it will be worth it and if they’ll get the most out of it.

  • Mental health and employee wellbeing

    The Covid-19 pandemic dramatically altered the blog content covered by Monkey Puzzle across 2020. Many of our additional articles addressed the impact of the virus on the mental health of the workforce, and with good reason. It affected everyone, at all levels, both inside and outside of work.

  • Organisational structure, culture and leadership

    The arrival of Covid-19 transformed far more than our workplaces in 2020 and is thought to have brought forward remote working by 10 years - all in a matter of a few weeks.

What started in 2020 was barely the tip of the iceberg.

  • What leaders can do to support workplace mental health

    Mental health and wellbeing are now urgent leadership priorities. Failure to tackle the problems caused by the pandemic isn’t an option for any organisation that wants to do the right thing for its people and also remain productive. With growing incidents of workplace stress, burnout, isolation and loss of engagement, every organisation will have encountered at least some of these issues first hand.

  • Are these Magnificent Seven Time Wasters fuelling your burnout?

    We are all trying to manage and deliver more, at work and at home. With so many demands on our time, it can be difficult to know how to ensure everything receives adequate attention. Invariably something crashes. Increasingly as we cope with the fallout from the pandemic, the risk is it’ll be us.

  • Are these Magnificent Seven Time Wasters fuelling your burnout?

    Could it be that predictions about the end of office life have been a little premature? New YouGov research shows a sizeable percentage of the UK wants a return to office life just as it used to be before the pandemic. With lockdown restrictions lifting, the topic of exactly where we’ll soon be working and how much time we spend there is very much a current talking point.

  • Wellbeing strategies for resilient leaders

    Much has been made of the impact of the pandemic and the effects of remote working on the wellbeing of employees this past year. As we tentatively return to some semblance of normality, it will be the resilient organisations that will recover the quickest.
