Is your company making Wellbeing a priority in 2015? How do your employees feel about stress, pressure at work, and life balance? Here at Best Companies, Wellbeing is one of 8 vital factors which together formulate our BCI Methodology, because we believe that cultivating employee Wellbeing is absolutely essential to developing high levels of engagement in your workplace. Wondering why? Here's the lowdown.
Poor Health, Poor Show
How can you help to bring out the best in your people, if they aren't feeling their best? Focusing on the Personal Growth of your employees entails looking out for them in all spheres of their life. Are they spending too much sitting down at their desks, are they working too late, are they stressed out because their toddler is ill and they are unable to take time off to manage the situation? Get to know your employees and their Wellbeing needs, to discover how best to improve the health and wealth of your business. Are you providing enough opportunities for healthy eating, or exercise? Do you offer flexible working hours or a mindfulness programme to reduce stress? Open up to your Wellbeing blind spots.
Be sure to regularly take stock of the atmosphere in your office – is it a happy place to be? Are people stressed? Is the design of the space really working to grow close working relationships, or to create divisions and tension? There's nothing like walking into a company where employees feel truly cared for and valued – the difference in atmosphere is palpable. Consider how you can create an environment which is genuinely buzzing with excitement, motivation and positivity. Not only will your employees benefit, but your clients will notice the difference too. And when it comes to recruitment, a cool company culture can prove incredibly attractive.
