Create the Perfect Employee Wellbeing Strategy
We believe in the importance of employee wellbeing! Employers and leaders play a key role in supporting employee wellbeing. With more and more employees being affected with depression, anxiety and financial worries due to the impact of COVID-19, a robust financial and wellbeing strategy is an essential employee benefit consideration.
Designing a health and wellbeing strategy will help create a caring culture, reduce stress, and promote a happy and healthy workforce. Three keys areas to focus for the strategy can include;
- Physical health and wellbeing
- Mental wellbeing
- Financial wellbeing
Physical Health and Wellbeing
Improving the physical health and wellbeing of your workforce can feel an overwhelming task, and it’s hard to know where to begin. A great starting point is the health benefits you provide for your employees. Many modern healthcare products provide a range of ‘added value’ services to help promote health & wellbeing within your organisation. We can work with your existing healthcare providers, or advisers, to build on your health & wellbeing strategy, developing a range of wellbeing initiatives.
As an added value service our expert health and wellbeing partners can help; from prevention tools through to treatment solutions and targeted health communications and plans. tailoring your health and wellbeing strategy has never been easier – ensuring you get the best value and best results for your investment.
Mental Health and Confidential Support
Support your employees’ emotional wellbeing when they need it most, by offering an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). By providing the right tools and resources through an EAP, you can help create a happier and more engaged workforce.
An EAP offers support to employees struggling with personal or work-related issues. Through a variety of options that include online, over the phone, virtual and in-person services, your employees can be assured they have access to confidential support when they need it most.
- 24/7/365 support
- Support across email, 1-2-1 counselling and an EAP phone helpline
- Mental health assessment tools and online physicals
- Remote & face to face counselling
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Providing digital access to workplace savings tools can help promote an educated financial culture and the opportunity to build wealth, which most employees don’t come across in their day to day lives. We believe more is required so drive education alongside this opportunity to help employees on the road to financial rehabilitation.
Promote Employee Wellbeing
Improved wellbeing increases productivity and motivation, it also builds morale and develops high performing teams, all while decreasing stress.
41% of employees experienced mental health symptoms caused, or worsened, by work in 2020.
Provide employees with tips to improve their overall health and wellbeing, and training to enhance wellness in the workplace.
Health and Wellbeing has become a popular concept in the modern workplace, but you can adapt its meaning to suit your business. Having a strategy in place to help improve the lives of your employees can help morale and build motivation.
Employment can have a positive or negative impact on our physical and mental health. Outside influences, be they financial, familial or health related, will also take their toll.
Health and wellbeing initiatives reward and motivate staff, as well as helping to meet your duty of care as an employer. A healthy and well-motivated workforce will significantly improve the productivity and effectiveness of a business.
