As leaders and heads of departments, the health and wellbeing of your management team and staff is a growing concern. Not only do you need to worry about the health of your employees, but you also have a sense of responsibility and worry that the work you are providing may be contributing to poor health. Modern jobs are becoming more sedentary and mentally demanding, leading to physical and mental health issues for many people.
The impact of poor wellbeing on an organisation can be exponential, affecting all levels of the business. For example, if a manager is engaged at work, their team is three times more likely to be engaged as well. If a manager is struggling with their wellbeing, they will not be as productive or engaged, leading to a negative experience for the team.
In addition, poor wellbeing can lead to disengagement and ultimately, the loss of valuable employees. To address the issue of health and wellbeing within your organisation, it is important to shift your mindset and view it as a modern life problem rather than just a business problem. Your business has the potential to be a solution to the modern challenges of wellbeing. By creating a positive work culture and environment, offering support and resources for employee health and wellbeing, and promoting a healthy work-life balance, you can improve the overall health and productivity of your team.
