Employee wellbeing has become a bit of a buzzword in the last few years or so, but do you know what it means and how to create a culture that puts wellbeing at its heart?
Wellbeing at work is all about how our work life, whether that’s our tasks, stress levels and work environment (wherever that may be!) affects our overall health and happiness, both in and out of work. As well as encapsulating physical health effects from work, like incorrect deck set ups and back problems, or eye strain from a screen, it’s also about how our work life can affect our mood and mental health.
When we achieve positive wellbeing at work, it can help us reach our potential, be productive and creative every day, build strong relationships with our colleagues and be able to manage any stress that crops up.
Having a culture that looks at wellbeing at work, isn’t just the right thing to do for your employees, it also benefits employers. If you’re not sure where to start here’s our 7 steps to building a culture of wellbeing at work.
