Smart employers understand that their company operates better when their staff are healthy, motivated, and focused – and this can be achieved by companies promoting employee wellbeing. Over 60% of employees state that they would feel more motivated and more likely to recommend their company as a good place to work if their employer took action to support employee’s mental wellbeing, and the great thing is that promoting employee wellbeing is not only the right thing to do but can be incredibly easy too.
How to Promote Wellbeing in the Work Place
If you are currently looking to promote employee wellbeing in your workplace, here are just a few ideas:
It is important for you to talk with all team members regularly, seeing how they are doing and identifying any possible causes of stress – You can do this by organising individual catch ups with staff members or opting to include a section focusing on mental health in your team meetings. You should focus on two-way communication, making sure that employees feel as though they can talk to you if anything is affecting their wellbeing at work.
A poor work/life balance can quickly lead to employees feeling stressed. This can be avoided by encouraging employees to work sensible hours, take full lunch breaks, rest and recuperate after busy periods and take their full annual leave entitlement.
Learning and Development
Employees should feel valued and always supported. You can promote employee wellbeing by investing in your employees’ skills and allowing them to constantly learn and develop so that they don’t get stuck in a rut. You should provide staff with development opportunities where possible.
Building Working Relationships
Employee wellbeing can be created across an entire workforce when you focus on allowing employees to build positive relationships with one another. This can be achieved by encouraging teamwork and collaboration, promoting positive behaviours to avoid conflict, ensuring strict policies on bullying and harassment are in place and encouraging exercise and regular social events and team building activities.
