Home working during COVID-19

Workplace Health logo'Thrive at Home' toolkit 

The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) have developed a ‘Thrive at Home’ toolkit to support employers and home workers during the pandemic.

It has been designed to give practical advice, support and information on how to keep staff who are working from home mentally and physically fit. 

Topics covered by the toolkit include helping staff deal with anxiety, especially those with existing mental health conditions, eating healthily and coping with financial uncertainty. It also looks at reducing the impact of working alone and setting up computer equipment to avoid future back, shoulder and knee injuries.
