Supporting Employee Wellbeing In The WorkPlace

With World Wellbeing Week taking place from 26th - 30th June, now is a valuable opportunity for business leaders and HR teams to evaluate and develop ways in which they can support their employee’s health and wellbeing at work.

There is strong evidence to suggest that workplaces with wellbeing procedures and policies in place are more productive, increasing productivity by as much as 12%. Employee wellbeing encompasses the physical, mental/emotional and financial health of your staff. With 58% of the world’s population spending one-third of their life at work, creating a positive work environment that supports employee wellbeing is at the forefront of business. **source, HR news**

Here Riada take a look at how employers can encourage good mental health in their organisation to better support staff and retain their best people:

1. Improved employee mental health: Mental health training can help employees identify and manage symptoms of common mental health struggles such as stress, anxiety, and depression. This can lead to improved mental wellbeing at work and reduced absenteeism.

2. Increased productivity: A mentally healthy workforce is more engaged and productive, leading to improved performance and increased efficiency.

3. Better teamwork: Mental health training can promote a supportive work environment and encourage open communication, improving teamwork and collaboration.

4. Reduced stress levels: Mental health training can teach employees coping strategies to manage stress and maintain a healthy work-life balance. This can reduce burnout and improve job satisfaction.

5. Improved retention: Providing support shows employees that their employer values their wellbeing, which can reduce staff turnover.

6. Enhanced reputation: Companies prioritising wellbeing are considered socially responsible and attractive to potential employees and customers.

By creating a supportive and healthy workplace environment, organisations can recognise if and when employees might need support and enhance their employees’ job satisfaction and overall health.
