What Is Employee Wellbeing?
Wellbeing is a mental and physical state of being healthy and happy. In the workplace, employee wellbeing is defined as employees that fit this state while performing their duties and while this is mostly determined by a person’s character and home life, employers can also influence their employee’s sense of wellbeing.
Physical wellbeing can be affected by your workplace environment such as the office layout, temperature and natural light. Mental wellbeing can be affected by the more social aspect of work such as working well with colleagues, workload and how invested your company is in employee development. Even small changes in these areas can lead to a number of improvements in your organisation.
Why Is Wellbeing At Work Important?
There have been a number of studies conducted to see what role employee wellbeing has in the workplace. For example, in 2014 the UK government conducted a report into the effects of wellbeing at work and they found that higher employee wellbeing lead to the following outcomes:
- Lower stress in employees
- Positive work environments
- Increased employee engagement
- Improved work performance
- Job satisfaction
- Increased financial performance
As employers are beginning to understand the many benefits employee wellbeing has on their businesses, there have been increasing number of strategies developed to work on this, but many are still in their infancy. Here at HIVE360 we are able to implement an employee wellbeing strategy on your behalf.
