Managing People in the New Normal – Principles Based On Mental Health and Wellbeing

About the Book

The world of work has changed dramatically. We now live in a world where the use of terms such as “hybrid working” and the “new normal” have become the norm, words hardly uttered in the world of work before the pandemic.

Technology such as Zoom and Teams which now play a crucial and integral part in the way we work was unheard of. The new normal, whatever it is and whatever it will become, brings with it a host of new challenges for organisations and managers.

These challenges are brand new and unique. They have not been explored or studied to establish best practices for the new normal we now work and live in. It has left organisations and managers disorientated.

Whether you are a shareholder, a business owner, a CEO, a manager or the managed, this book outlines new thoughts and principles for managing people in the new normal based on mental health and wellbeing.

New thought and principles that can leverage the human element to shift the thinking and behaviour of organisations. It presents an ideology based on human connection and wellbeing with the power to slingshot the working world into a far better and brighter future
