Employee Wellbeing Inside And Outside of Work can greatly improve your work product and your business achievements.

 

Positive employee wellbeing is something that everyone should strive for, and when you’re at work, it’s something that you shouldn’t ignore or forget about – the more positive you are and the happier you feel, the more productive you will be. You’ll also take less time off work and be more enthusiastic when it comes to meetings and other discussions. 

 

As an employer, ensuring that your employees have positive wellbeing is an important factor to consider. It will help your business be more successful, it will keep your staff loyal (reducing hiring costs), and it will show that you are a good employer, enhancing your business’s reputation. With this in mind, here are some of the best ways to improve your employee wellbeing and enjoy the success that comes with it.

Offer Benefits To Support Employee Wellbeing 

 

When an employer offers a number of different work benefits that will support their employees’ wellbeing, they are showing that they care. Although these benefits might cost you to provide, when you take into account how negative feelings can affect your business and reduce the quality of the work done, you’ll see they are a worthwhile investment. 

 

Some of the best benefits to offer include healthcare from Archer Health that will cover all your employees’ needs, gym membership, free healthy snacks, unlimited breaks, discounts on shopping, cycle-to-work schemes, and much more. If the employees can use some of these benefits outside of work, that’s even better, as you will have much happier employees who will want to work for you for the long term. 

 

Staff Education 

 

If someone feels they don’t know how to do something at work, can you imagine how they would affect them? If they are uncomfortable about asking for help, they might struggle for many months or even longer, trying to work their best but never quite achieving what they want to. This means that they will be unhappy, and this could even affect their overall wellbeing and mental health

 

Make sure that your team knows they can ask questions and that you will provide answers. This is especially important even if it’s something that they feel they should already know. An open-door policy is useful. Regular training will also be helpful. Educating your staff on their duties, the equipment they use, new legislation, and other elements of their work means they are always up to date. In turn,  this will boost their confidence and well-being. As well it will give you better results. 

 

Create A Value Culture 

 

Do you currently show your employees how much you value them? Do you just expect them to do their work and receive no praise or recognition? If it’s the latter, you might be contributing to negative feelings in the workplace.

 

Everyone likes to be told they’ve done an excellent job and receive validation for their work; if you can create a value culture where good work is praised, and contributions are recognized, you will find your employees are much happier.  In turn, they will then have a better sense of wellbeing.

  1. I left my corporate job 5 years ago. I was burned out and felt that we were being treated like robots by management. I wish companies would realize that the people who drive their business forward are their front-liner employees. They are the ones that bring in the money, so minding their well being should be a priority.

    1. Recognition of the hard workers and the producers would be quite a smart move. Unfortunately, not all companies do this OR they get confused between those that take the credit and those that actually do the work.

  2. It would be great if all companies were like this! I work for myself but I know many friends who have issues with their employers.

  3. I love these ideas! I’m an especially big fan of creating a culture of valuing employees. When I was in the workforce, I worked with a lot people in companies who definitely did NOT value their people.

  4. I manage a team of three people. It is easy to lose sight of these things that matter and serve to encourage and motivate employees. Thanks for the reminder!

  5. Honestly, no matter how companies preach that they have an excellent employee program, it’s not always practiced by line managers. I think that creates conflict. Well, that’s the case in many companies at least in my country.

  6. It would be amazing if employers used these approaches. I have gone through a lot with employers and it can be so demotivating when things go badly and you constantly feel unappreciated.
