Employee well-being

Employee well-being is a buzzword in the corporate world, but with data showing that work-related mental illness accounts for 44% of all work-related ill health, more needs to be done to support employees.

Organisations need to ensure that they are providing continuous support and strategies for employee health and well-being. To efficiently support employees, we must take a proactive approach to well-being incentives, an approach that encompasses an organisation and acts as a preventative measure.

According to a recent CIPD survey, the most common causes of work-related stress are due to unmanageable workloads and ‘management style’. These causes are avoidable. Identifying key factors in the workplace that could risk employee well-being should be addressed and improved before issues arise.

A further finding from the survey notes that only 30% of organisations implement stress management training for the whole workforce. In workplaces where some stressful factors cannot be altered, for example, naturally high-pressure professions, equipping teams with the skills to handle and manage stress needs to be a priority.
