The 3 pillars of employee wellbeing

Employee wellbeing has three pillars: physical, mental and financial.

Today, each is recognised as critical to developing a strong, healthy organisation.

Get employee wellbeing right, and it can help you build what McKinsey, a global management consulting firm, would class as a “non-traditional employee value proposition”. This is where you make your organisation an attractive workplace for current (and future) employees, beyond the traditional aspects – like salary, job title and career progression.

It also helps the bottom line. A recent Saïd Business School study found that organisations with a high level of employee wellbeing are more likely to have high employee productivity and low employee turnover.

These result in:

  • Better work output across the organisation
  • Lower recruitment costs
