I've been lucky enough to work with tons of businesses and their employees on wellbeing and engagement over the last three years, and from this, I've seen what works and what doesn't.
A lot of businesses commit time, effort and money to what seem like excellent solutions only to get frustratingly poor results.
There's no one size fits all approach to employee wellbeing, but there are two components that work so well I've come to view them as essential.
1. Ask your people about their wellbeing.
Throwing a 'solution' at your team without first listening to them usually leads to poor results, but asking them first shows you listen, you care, and you respond.
2. Address wellbeing during work hours.
Making time within working hours to talk about or address wellbeing shows you genuinely care about this topic and leads to employees feeling way more valued.
