Information on wellbeing at work.
Wellness & wellbeing at work has been discussed over and over again by both the employers and employees, and there is a good reason why!
As previous research has proven, wellbeing and wellness initiatives in the workplace both increase productivity and decrease absence, and most importantly improve the general workplace morale and employee satisfaction. In other words, any workplace initiatives referring to the wellness and wellbeing of the employees tend to help keeping the employees happier, healthier and more efficient.
Workplace wellness and wellbeing continues to be an important point of discussion for employers and employees. And for good reason. With 3 out of every 5 employees having experienced mental health issues at work… It’s clear that we have a collective responsibility to address the issue. As research has demonstrated, wellbeing and wellness initiatives in the workplace both increase productivity and decrease absence, but more importantly improve general workplace morale and employee satisfaction. But while employers should provide an organisational strategy that addresses workplace wellbeing, there are many ‘small steps’ that we ourselves can take to increase our wellbeing at work. An often considered, but seldom realised step is to get our work—life balance right.
