A variety of factors can bring on holiday anxiety, and this year, with the impacts of the pandemic, there are new, complex situations, challenges and circumstances that employees and their families must consider. Learn more about these issues and actions you can take to protect yourself, loved ones, friends and colleagues. Watch the webinar here.
