Supporting Employee Health and Wellbeing in the Wake of COVID-19

In the face of a global pandemic, employees have had to implement significant changes to their working lives that would normally take years, in only a matter of months. Coupled with social isolation, economic uncertainty, and few options for escape, many people are overwhelmed by deep fatigue, extreme stress, work-life imbalance, and financial anxiety.

Based on Peakon, a Workday company’s, extensive database of over 150 million employee survey responses, and 30 million employee comments, we’re able to showcase how employee health and wellbeing has evolved over the past few years.

Key takeaways  from the survey include:

  • Physical health is a concern in some industries such as healthcare and manufacturing, but overall, mental and financial health dominated the conversation, comprising over 75% of employee wellbeing comments throughout 2020. 
  • HR leaders in both Mexico and the U.S. are in strong agreement about their commitment to wellbeing, at 35% and 33% respectively. While those in Brazil have the least confidence in their organization’s approach, with only 14% agreeing with the statement.
  • The reliance on data to make decisions about benefits varies between different countries. In the United States, 29% of respondents strongly agree that they rely on data, while only 13% say the same in Brazil.
