Here Are 5 Reasons Employers Should Care About Staff Well-being
1. Employee Engagement
Employee Engagement is beginning to become popular amongst companies that are considering the well-being of their staff. Effectively, what it means is an interaction between staff and employers where feelings, views, perspectives, and opinions are expressed openly. This could be carried out in a simplistic fashion; such as leaving a suggestion box out in the office. But how the gesture is received by employees is far more beneficial because it shows employees that their employers do care and wish to consider their views so that they can create a greater working experience for them. As a result, this creates a greater emotional attachment between the employees and their job roles, enabling them to perform tasks with higher interest.
2. Increased Productivity
Well-being suggests a pleasant experience and although such a statement seems so obvious, it is being heavily ignored within the workplace. Yet, imagine how effectively employees will interact with their work if their work itself is a source of a fulfilling sense of Well-being. Naturally, such an employee will be excited to wake up for work, ready to take on new challenges, and have their full focus on the tasks in front of them. Such an employee will be an unparalleled workforce but more importantly, such an employee will want to be this effective because of a vested return. This means the return must come from the workplace.
3. Employer Return on Investment
Perhaps there is no such thing as a good deed but sure enough once a good deed is carried out; it does feel great. Employers feel great due to their efforts which resulted in employees feeling great which then urges employers to regenerate the cycle and the feel-good clock keeps turning.
4. Recruitment and Retention
Beyond the personal experience of your staff, your business still needs to perform highly to be a success. But what if this could result from your employee’s working experience. This doesn’t mean how long they have worked for or where they have previously been employed, this means; was their experience at work uplifting and rewarding?
5. Company Reputation
If you have carried out a method that has implemented strategies for your employees to develop a sense of well-being within the workplace, then not only will you have team members which perform tasks with greater focus and efficiency, you will have team members who enjoy doing it.
