Whereas in the past ‘home-life’ and ‘work-life’ were understood as separate worlds, today that is not the case. With increased digital connectedness and the rise of working from home, ‘home-life’ and ‘work-life’ today are inextricably linked. Business today must safeguard people as much it does profit, and ensure that employee wellbeing is considered in decision making processes. With statistics as high as 83% of workers suffering from work-related stress in the United States, awareness is rising on the prevalence of mental as well as physical health.
Whilst employee wellbeing has been a part of business environments for decades now, since the mid-2000’s a new set of solutions focussed on motivation and behaviour have been circulating. By understanding employee wellbeing as affected by stress, sleep, job satisfaction and financial health, employers were able to see an employee as a ‘whole person’. Rather than focusing on one isolated element, they could take a holistic approach to improving wellbeing. What’s more, organisations who prioritise employee well-being experienced more engagement and as a result soaring profits and stock prices.
We guide families through these best-practices for implementing authentic employee wellbeing initiatives and give them the tools needed to measure this engagement over time. Through a focus on purpose, we help families align their employees under a vision and create an environment where they feel emotionally and mentally fulfilled.
