Workplace well being as an HR initiative has been growing momentum over that last few years.
It’s a statement of commitment to provide a safe, equality friendly, open and supportive culture.
It invites an organisation to promote tools to assist employees in obtaining a productive work environment through work/life balance.
It increases workplace competitiveness and monitors workplace stress.
Workplace Wellbeing encourages employees to be motivated, inspired, cultivates a more personal working environment & allows them to take more responsibility for their own actions.
Simple things like management of your own personal space and adding personal photographs, will give an employee a greater sense of self.
For those working in offices and spending long hours in front of computer screens, it is helpful to take regular short breaks, to stand up and even take a brief walk before returning to the desk.
Stretching the arms up and overhead, gentle shoulder rolls forwards and backwards can help to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. This will help reduce risk of back pain and tension headaches.
Building time into the day for relaxation, whether this is taking a stroll during the lunch hour or ten minutes sitting quietly, will dramatically improve employee morale.
When ‘eating on the go’, whether trying to work or when walking between appointments, the body does not have chance to relax, and digestion is not as efficient as it could be. So again, ensuring that staff are actually taking their proper breaks throughout the day will make a grand improvement.
Tipping Points can help you create unbelievable Workplace Wellbeing which your employees will love and your bottom line will profit from.
