      Lardani, Andrea; Sanchez-Escobar, Elena (EAPA, 2021-01)
      The COVID-19 pandemic has demanded that employee assistance professionals deal with abrupt changes in the workplace, differences that may include the experiencing and managing of new emotions. What is the psychological impact of a worldwide lockdown on workers? How are they coping with remote work? What do they need from their employers? Are there differences between Spanish and Latin-American responses? Our organizations collected and analyzed 693 questionnaires to answer these very questions. This article will present key results analysis as well as discuss how EAPs are responding to this unprecedented time. One point is clear: EAPs need to show companies that well-being policies are more important than ever.
