The Future Fit Of Workplace Wellbeing
How workplace wellbeing is evolving.
We are working and living in extraordinary times and we as individuals and teams in the workplace are being stress-tested to the max, and will continue to be so. If the global pandemic has taught business leaders anything, it’s the need to be ready and “future fit” for times of great disruption, potential crisis and continual change.
If there is any certainty in life, it is that things will never stay the same. Yet, still so many of us struggle to embrace and accept change.
Now, more than ever, we need to find ways to support the mental and emotional health of people, to create the most balanced, connected and resilient workforces, who are motivated and energised to perform their best work – even during times of change.
What does that mean for the future of workplace wellbeing?
Whilst there are those that do enjoy working from home and are productive doing so, many will have depleted mental health and will be struggling to cope with the demands of the “new workplace” reality – working away from their teams, struggling with motivation, coupled with distractions at home and worries associated with the pandemic.
But one thing’s for certain, with 1 in 4 suffering from mental ill health over the course of a year prior to COVID-19 and with the certain rise in stress that comes with this global crisis, mental health interventions and preventative measures are now business critical to prevent burnout amongst employees.
We’ve compiled our findings and conversations with business leaders around mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and have created an insights paper to help you put the case for mental health to your business.
