3 ways you can help the wellbeing of your employees

Maintaining positive physical and mental health is essential for employee wellbeing. It can have an impact on motivation, productivity, absenteeism and staff turnover.

A workplace culture that nurtures all aspects of your employee’s wellbeing is important to maximise the effects across your entire employee population. Ensure you have something for everyone, national and comprehensive coverage will increase take-up from dispersed or remote working populations.

Offer discounted gym memberships
A more active workforce has numerous benefits for mental wellbeing including more energy, a better mood, more relaxed and better sleep, less stress and negative thoughts, and increased social connectivity with new and different people. It is also very good for our physical health as it betters weight management and blood pressure levels, and reduces the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and cancer. Along with strengthening bones, muscles and joints, so less aches and pains.

Make health assessments accessible to all
It’s important to demonstrate that the health of your workforce matters, and as an employer you genuinely care. The Capita Workplace Wellness Employee Insight Report 2019 found that 46% feel their employer does not care about their health as long as they come into work. It also revealed that 64% of employees would welcome incentives from their employer that reward healthy behaviour, such as contributions towards the cost of health screenings. Health assessments help to protect the health of your employees, future proof your business and encourage staff to take control of their health.

Don’t forget about your employee’s emotional wellbeing
Fostering a company culture that endorses positive emotional wellbeing is important for both employees and employers alike. 6 out of 10 employees suffer from mental and emotional wellbeing issues attributed to their time at work. Did you know that 1 in 5 people take a day off work due to stress, and that a quarter of people consider resigning due to stress?

MyMindPal hosts a variety of evidence-based exercises to assist employees to reduce stress in the moment, build a positive mind-set, learn to live in the present moment, and build their levels of resilience – collectively leading to an enhanced level of emotional wellbeing, increased performance levels and reduced absenteeism.
