What is employee well-being?
It is defined as your employees’ overall physical, emotional, mental and economic health. It is impacted by different factors, for example, their decisions, their relationship with colleagues, and the tools and resources they have access to. Work hours, salary and office security also significantly influence employee health. It is directly proportional to employee performance; the more healthy the employees are, the greater their productivity will be.
While it differs from one individual to another, healthy employees allow for a productive workplace, promoting employee motivation towards their work. Other than their physical health, outside factors that impact employee health are relationships with family and friends and financial stress.
Why is it important?
The employer is responsible for providing their employees with vital help and care for their mental and physical well-being. Regardless of that, numerous organisations do not have a solid well-being strategy. A health methodology can help employees to feel supported and valued at the workplace; it will improve employees’ motivation and engagement to achieve the company’s goals. Reset Health Group offers a comprehensive well-being program for your employees’ physical and mental health.
Better engagement and productivity
When a well-being program is implemented at your workplace, employees will feel happier and connected with better health, and consequently, their productivity and engagement will increase. When employees’ health is optimised, they are able to focus more on their work and performance.
Lower absenteeism and turnover
Several studies demonstrate that well-being programs lower absenteeism rates in the workplace, decreasing the cost spent on employees’ healthcare. A healthy work environment motivates employees to work and keeps them in your company for a longer period. These well-being programs are cost-effective for employers, benefiting both employers and employees. Without such programs, there is a risk of burnout among workers.
Higher employee morale
Employees feel valued and competent when their necessities are met at all levels, including mental, physical and financial. A company that supports and respects work-life balance will attract talented candidates and maintain its current workers for longer.
If you treat your employees well, they will pass positive energy toward your clients. Remember that happy employees are your best ambassadors. When the employees are satisfied with the company, they will understand better how your service and product will best serve the client’s needs.
Attractive employer branding
A well-being program positively influences the culture of an organisation; you can utilise these programs to attract the best talent to your company. Happy workers are more likely to recommend your company to their friends, ensuring an engaged workforce and decreasing hiring expenses.
