Wellbeing in the Workplace

Wellbeing is ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’ (World Health Organisation)

60% of employees say they’d feel more motivated and more likely to recommend their organisation as a good place to work if their employer took action to support mental wellbeing.

FTSE 100 companies that prioritise employee engagement and wellbeing outperform the rest of the FTSE 100 by 10%.

Why is it important?

Smart employers know that organisations perform better when staff are healthy, motivated, and focussed. Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and for your organisation. Promoting wellbeing can help to create a positive working environment where workers feel valued and can thrive. If you are providing meaningful employment, then wellbeing in the workplace is key as it is if you want to be a socially conscious employer. It can help to reduce stress levels and contribute to employees being happier and more productive at work.

While we know there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to wellbeing at work, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development believe there are seven key domains of employee wellbeing:

  • Health
  • Good work
  • Values/principles
  • Collective/social
  • Personal growth
  • Good lifestyle choices
  • Financial wellbeing
