The wellbeing sector might cater to single, young people, but on the employers’ side this demographic makes up just one portion of the workforce. Particularly as staff transition back into the office, more nuanced support for high needs groups will have a resounding impact on the success of hybrid working models. Having gone through a period of exponential pressure to deliver at work and facing personal disruption in the home, staff up to the most senior level are at risk of employee burnout coming out of the pandemic.
Whether starting to commute to work again or juggling childcare over the summer break – the great return to the office is not without its stressors. Providing wellbeing benefits and work-life management services like childcare to support employees’ mental health must be a top priority for employers at this stage of the return to pre-covid19 activities.
In recent months, numerous studies have come out linking work-life balance to employee stress and wellbeing. Offering a diverse array of employee benefits programmes inclusive of family support is essential for the wellbeing of hybrid and in-office workers.
