Recent research has revealed that:
Wellbeing programmes are becoming a defining feature of business’ culture, helping to develop resilient, successful organisations. Companies that have a mental health strategy have leapt ahead of those without, in terms of the progress they have made in creating more open, positive corporate cultures.
Commitment to wellbeing is the most important habit of all: The specific behaviour an employee chooses to embrace isn’t nearly as important as the act of simply committing to engage in a healthy habit that is personally meaningful.
Engaging in wellbeing programs builds better teams: When employees engage in corporate wellbeing programs that help foster habits and attitudes on the individual level, the impact radiates to their teams and even client relationships, fostering environments of inclusion, belonging and improved citizenship behaviour.
Technology boosts wellbeing: Employees and teams that leveraged technology (via a wearable device or tracking app to track wellbeing) during the study reported more positive perceptions of team collaboration and client relationships.
Inclusive leadership and teamwork enable wellbeing to thrive: The work environment must be aligned with healthy behaviours for wellbeing to flourish. Specific environmental factors, such as inclusion, positive team dynamics and leadership/manager support, have a direct, positive result on employee wellbeing.
