It’s up to leaders to help workers manage the accompanying stress of so much disruption, says this CEO of an employee communications platform.
Change—it is the word that best describes the past year. For most companies, it’s been a year of continual disruption: remote work, furloughs and restructurings, rapid shifts in strategies, and more. For employees, the impact has been profound: They have been forced to adapt to a level of change never before experienced that is causing general fatigue and higher stress levels. And the pace of change is not slowing down.
