A Perspective on how Mental Health Pivots Productivity for Internal Auditors during and post Covid19.

The current Coronavirus (Covid19) pandemic has challenged the Internal Audit profession like every other business, impacting the mental health and productivity of Internal Audit members and its stakeholders. Areas impacted include:


1. Coping with the constant barrage of bad news

2. Difficulties of working from home

3. Difficulties of returning to work after being in isolation

This presentation will be an interactive session that covers how Internal Auditors can reflect and share practical tips to:

a)    Respond to constant bad news and still stay positive

b)    Address the fear of uncertainty and build resilience.

c)     Balance work-life while working from home and managing personal affairs.

d)    Stay healthy working from home.

e)    Readjust to a new normal back to work scenario.
