Why is Corporate Wellbeing so important?
Organisations that invest in mental health initiatives have employees who feel happier, more
valued and appreciated, leading to increased productivity, commitment and loyalty in return.
Respecting the wellbeing of your employees, is key for a more harmonious, healthier company culture.
Here in the UK, occupational stress can be perceived as a health and safety issue, with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defining work-related stress as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work”.
With mental health issues costing the UK economy £34.9bl last year alone, can your organisation afford not to invest in employee wellbeing?
In addition to my specialism in anxiety management both with private clients and through my Corporate Stress Management certification, I also have many years HR experience within the corporate sector, including working with international organisations, SME's and the social care sector.
I have managed workforce planning, recruitment, onboarding, and the training & development of all employee levels, as well as creating employee wellness programmes leading to external local authority accreditation.
Employee Mental Health & Wellbeing during Covid-19
Covid-19 has certainly had a huge impact on the mental health of all of us. Concerns surrounding physical and mental health, changes to our daily lives, work changes, worries about family & friends; financial pressures and an uncertain future outlook.
These fears all result in physical and mental strains including stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, boredom and loneliness.
With around 6.5 million people furloughed, additional pressure is also experienced by employees who are still working, through responsibility for extra tasks, potential salary changes and the daily pressure of .the immediate requirement for ensuring the business stays afloat. Together, this may well be putting the wellbeing of these individuals at risk too.
