6 LinkedIn courses to deal with pandemic-related stress
As the pandemic rages on and election stress and uncertainty causes stress and distraction, employee motivation is running on empty. But LinkedIn is offering courses to help workers get their spark back.
“We know employees are having a hard time bringing their whole selves to work,” says Jolie Miller, LinkedIn Learning’s head of business content strategy. “Our most popular course discusses how to make your emotions work for you and get your energy back so you can bring your best self to work.”
LinkedIn and Glint — the professional network’s employee engagement platform — found that burnout is up by 33% compared to last year, with survey respondents reporting high levels of stress, anxiety, fatigue and feelings of overwhelm. Miller says the pandemic is certainly to blame, but employees are experiencing its effects in very different ways.
“Unfortunately, a lot of folks are dealing with a variety of grief: loss of loved ones, loss of opportunities, travel, promotions,” Miller says. “It’s important to explore the whole spectrum and support employees who are on this journey in unique ways.”
To help employees excel even during times of stress, LinkedIn Learning created six new courses on topics like meditation, enhancing resilience, and dealing with grief and loss. Check out the full list ofcoursesavailable in their mental health track:
