Supporting Employees

When things feel uncertain or when we don’t generally feel safe, it’s normal to feel stressed. Your employees are likely experiencing anxiety around health for themselves or loved ones, finances, childcare, and more. 

Some of your employees may be immuno-compromised or live with someone who is. Many Vermonters are in recovery from substance use, depression, anxiety, and other mental health struggles. How do you support your employees' physical and mental health while keeping your business running?
