Health and well-being in the workplace is increasingly becoming recognised by employers as playing a very significant part in raising the productivity of the organisation. The evidence is clear, employees who feel safe and secure are more engaged, more productive, and less likely to leave for another employer. Well-being is cited by many as being more important than pay (in relative terms), when considering employment options. Organisations that demonstrate that their employees’ well-being is important reduce attrition rates, foster better workplace relationships, and increase levels of discretionary effort from their employees.
It has been proven that the investment in real terms, into Health and Well-Being programmes has a direct impact on profit and productivity. At IMJ HR we believe that this investment is integral to the sustainability and success of any organisation.
Health and well-being is the recognition of what practical measures can be taken to increase the feeling of security and safety of individuals within an organisation. Its measures can range from raising awareness of everyday individual interactions and how interpersonal relationships are conducted to offering counselling services and healthcare packages. It can mean environmental changes such as additional light in an office area to the improvements of recreational areas and gymnasium membership.
With a measure of creativity and guidance, organisations can make simple adjustments that can have far-reaching positive effects.
