Employee wellbeing has become one of the most talked about topics in the HR lexicon. But what aspects of our wellness are we referring to when, as employers, we endeavour to improve the health and wellbeing of our staff?
The importance of employee wellbeing and its effect on talent attraction and retention are well-defined, but as we enter the almost-post-pandemic world, many are feeling an unnerving mix of uncertainty, concern and relief – we’re glad to be moving forward, but what’s ahead of us remains unclear.
Seven dimensions of wellness at work
So while an employee may be in peak physical health, do they really feel well if they’re in financial trouble? Another may be resilient and emotionally robust, but perhaps they crave a sense of purpose in what they do.
This Personnel Today webinar, in association with Employment Hero, bridges the gap between employers and employees when it comes to wellness at work, and the impact this has on hiring and retaining talent.
Personnel Today’s editor Rob Moss is joined by Charlotte Boffey, UK head of services at Employment Hero, who shares the results of survey of 2,000 UK workers, which asked them about the ongoing impacts of Covid-19, how financial stress impacts their workday, and how personally fulfilled they are by their work. Also on the panel is Clare Price, director of clinical services at Onebright, a personalised, on-demand mental healthcare provider.
Webinar registrants will also learn:
- How employees’ mental health has been affect by the pandemic
- How Covid has affected the importance people place on their career
- Why wellness at work goes hand in hand with employee loyalty
- The impact of remote working on people’s health, and
- How employers are letting down working parents.
The 60-minute webinar included a Q&A for audience members to submit questions to our panel.
Future-thinking employers know that for a peak performing team, employee wellbeing has to be above average. High-growth and resilient businesses are created by healthy and inspired employees, who are given the environment to do their best work.
