Creating a Positive Work Culture: Strategies for Supporting Employee Wellbeing

Why an Employee Wellbeing Strategy is key to being a successful business

At DiSRUPT Agency we know that employee wellbeing strategies are not just a buzzword or a trend; they are a fundamental aspect of a successful business.

A culture of wellbeing can reduce healthcare costs, improve employee morale, increase productivity, and attract and retain top talent. Implementing wellbeing strategies and programmes is not a one-size-fits-all approach that’s why we have partnered with Outliers Wellbeing to supply Wellbeing Strategies as part of our DiSRUPT RPO offering.

Companies must consider the unique needs of their employees and the culture of their organisation. One way to do this is through employee feedback and engagement. Conducting surveys or focus groups can provide valuable insight into employee needs and preferences.

“Wellbeing can be a confusing space, where the value of wellbeing services is poorly understood, and multiple different wellbeing activities are taking place out of alignment and without strategy. Wellbeing like this fails to build happy and healthy people that can perform over the long term and offers poor value to the business, lots of nice acute moments but no lasting change.  We want to fix this common issue...we want to disrupt your wellbeing journey and bring about lasting growth and joy.” - Matt Lock founder of Outliers Wellbeing on DiSRUPT Wellbeing

Companies that ensure that their wellbeing programs and benefits are accessible and inclusive are more likely to cultivate an inclusive and healthy workplace culture. Employees with disabilities or chronic illnesses may require additional accommodations or resources, and companies should be prepared to provide them. Additionally, companies must ensure that their wellbeing initiatives do not discriminate against any employee based on age, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

A successful wellbeing strategy requires ongoing commitment and evaluation. Companies should regularly assess the effectiveness of their wellbeing programs and benefits and adjust as needed. Companies should regularly communicate the availability of these resources to employees and encourage their use.

In today's fast-paced and competitive business environment, employee wellbeing has become a top priority for socially responsible and market leading companies. Innovative companies recognise that happy, healthy employees are more productive and engaged in their work, leading to increased profits and success.

How can I promote employee wellbeing through wellness programmes and benefits?

Promoting employee wellbeing through wellness programmes and benefits is an effective strategy for creating a positive work culture. Companies can offer a range of benefits such as gym memberships, healthy food options, mental health support, and flexible work schedules.

These benefits demonstrate a commitment to employee wellbeing and can boost employee morale and loyalty.

What is Mental and physical health support?

Mental and physical health support is also crucial for employee wellbeing. Companies can provide counselling services, mental health days, and access to healthcare providers. Providing resources to support employee health, companies can reduce absenteeism, increase productivity, and create a more positive work environment.

How do I use employee wellness metrics

Employee wellness metrics are a useful tool for measuring the effectiveness of wellbeing programmes. Companies can track metrics such as absenteeism, turnover rates, and employee satisfaction surveys. These metrics provide insight into the success of wellbeing programmes and can help companies make informed decisions about where to focus their efforts.

How do create a culture of work-life balance?

Creating a culture of work-life balance is another important strategy for promoting employee wellbeing. Companies can offer flexible work arrangements, telecommuting options, and providing holiday time beyond the legal minimum. By encouraging a healthy work-life balance, companies can reduce employee stress, improve job satisfaction, and increase retention rates.

As the octopus uses its tentacles to navigate and thrive in its environment, companies can use strategies for supporting employee wellbeing to navigate the competitive business landscape and thrive in the market. So, the question is, what steps will your company take to promote employee wellbeing and create a positive work culture?
