There has been an immense buzz around workplace wellness in these last few months and very rightly so. The extent of disruption brought about by the global pandemic has caused a historic rise in anxiety, depression, stress among employees – putting in great jeopardy their health and well-being. Organizations around the world are rising to address these challenges as they begin to realize that managing employees’ wellness is no longer a choice, but the need of the time.
Here’s why addressing the need for workplace wellness for employees and rethinking it in light of the current realities remains critical for any organization.
Re-building socio-emotional health
As employees adapted to the new reality and underwent sudden routine changes such as remote working and limitations to interaction with people and environment, their mental and physical health took a serious toll. Facilitating and supporting them to manage their well-being and overcome the effects of the pandemic will help them recover faster.
Helping employees transition back
The value of prioritizing well-being and providing valuable support to employees as they return to their workplace after a great period of stress and uncertainty cannot be understated. Providing avenues to improve their well-being will help them smoothly transition back to work and will foster a workplace environment where employees can thrive.
Driving organizational performance
A culture conducive to the health and well-being of its workers automatically translates into increased productivity, creativity, and mindfulness and helps reduces absenteeism. In essence, investing in employees’ wellness drives organizational performance – a challenge that companies are facing now more than ever.
