Pandemic Support

In the face of COVID-19 and the associated uncertainty, ITW Construction Asia Pacific offered all employees an opportunity to attend a 4 week virtual Well-being Program facilitated by Fleur Hazelwood of the Blueberry Institute During the program, we learned the importance of using our emotional intelligence, creating psychological safety, adopting empathy and prioritising wellbeing.  It has been inspiring to see the promotion of wellbeing amongst Team Members, particularly through the daily connections amongst colleagues and the focus on helpful routines and meaningful work, all of which serve to protect our mental health.
