How can you prioritize employee well-being?
Employee well-being is crucial to your company’s success, so it is important you prioritize employee wellness and mental health.
Inc. shares the following ways you can support your employees’ mental health and well-being.
- Understand your employees’ needs. Employees have different needs to consider, such as whether they travel, how stressful their jobs are or how their mental health is affected. Assess your employees’ needs by asking for feedback through anonymous surveys, check-in meetings and an open-door policy to help address issues and concerns. Reduce the stigma of mental health by promoting empathy and increasing awareness of stress levels.
- Provide resources and flexibility. This may include an update on time-off policies, a wellness allowance and company-funded resources such as mindfulness apps, online mental health resources or even a company membership to a gym or yoga studio. Ensure your employees believe they are taken care of and bring their best to work each day. Such strategies can lead to increased creativity, heightened loyalty and a stronger commitment to your company.
- Sustain the initiatives long term. To try to ensure long-term success of well-being initiatives, managers should lead by example and model a healthy work-life balance while incorporating mental health resources into their own lives. You should respect employees’ personal time and encourage team members to do the same so employees know you support them. Incorporating mental health resources and practices into your employee handbook can help contribute to your initiatives’ long-term success.
