Don’t isolate those working in isolation

Description: Companies of all shapes and sizes can have employees who feel isolated, needing more support from employers

Workplaces, no matter the size or industry, have a key role to play in promoting and supporting the well-being of its employees.  But what happens when the workplace is not clearly defined within four office walls or filled with a team? What happens when employees are working on their own in isolation?

The trucking industry, where the boundaries of a typical workplace don’t apply, is one of many sectors that faces such challenges. Typical conditions for transport drivers put them at greater risk of and increased exposure to psychological harm without the proper supports to prevent or address it. Trucking HR Canada outlines the issues and challenges faced by truck drivers while being on the road, as well as strategies to address to promote and protect the mental health of those working in isolation.
