After one of the most challenging years many of us will remember, there’s never been a more appropriate time to think about how we engage our workforce and support them on their wellbeing journey. It’s just as important that we don’t forget out own.
We know that employee engagement and wellbeing are inextricably linked. It has never been more important to shine a spotlight on the environment we create for our employees, giving them the very best opportunity to be happy, motivated and productive.
The pandemic has naturally created huge feelings of anxiety for many of us, whether about the security of our employment or about our health – not to mention the health of our loved ones – and widespread remote working has left many feeling alone and isolated.
The vaccine and lifting of restrictions in the UK have created a more positive outlook for the year ahead. However, 2021 will bring new challenges in our return to work and our ability to successfully interact with our colleagues in a hybrid working environment.
With this insight report, we want to talk openly about how the pandemic has challenged our wellness and offer practical advice for improving both your own, and your employees’ wellbeing. We also look at how you can take a holistic approach to engaging your workforce and providing an environment for them to flourish, as well as publishing the results of our most recent survey on what’s important to employees for their wellbeing at work.
Many thanks to our contributors and to everyone who participated in our survey. We hope you’ll find this insight useful, and if you’d like to discuss any of the issues raised or to talk to a member of our team about how you can better look after the wellbeing in your organisation, please contact us.
