Performance, Productivity and Profit

Looking after your staff’s emotional well-being isn’t just a nice gesture — it’s essential.

More and more companies claim to place a high priority on the well-being of their workers, but does investing in employee well-being actually lead to higher productivity and can we see any difference on the bottom line? 

There is suggestion of a strong, positive correlation between employee wellbeing, productivity and performance – The evidence base is steadily growing.  While we wait for more data, perhaps we move forward and do what we already suspect is best?

When you create a workplace where people feel valued and supported, employees are more engaged, they collaborate and they come up with workable ideas and solutions to problems. When there’s trust and positivity in the workplace it’s easier to solve issues and keep things running smoothly. Happy employees stay in post longer saving you money on recruiting and training new staff.

I support well-being champions, Health and Safety Supervisors, HR Managers, Learning and Development Co-ordinators and Diversity and Inclusion Leads to include staff in the conversations that lead to better performance, increased productivity and more profit within a business.

There’s an array of approaches we might consider for staff emotional help; EAP programmes, Mental Health 1st aid, peer support, mentoring, coaching. Of course, the ideal solution probably lies in a mix of all these approaches – A one size approach will never fit everyone.  Which approaches are you currently using and which do your staff value most highly?

When you invest in your team’s mental well-being you’re helping them handle stress better leading to fewer sick days and more focus on the job.

Happy employees tend to be productive employees. When people feel supported and appreciated, they’re more likely to go the extra mile and when your team is firing on all cylinders, your customers notice, leading to more repeat business and word-of-mouth referrals.

In today’s job market, top talent has options. Companies that prioritise their employees’ well-being stand out from the crowd. When you have a reputation as a great place to work, it’s easier to attract the best and brightest.

Taking care of your team isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s a good business move that can help your business thrive in today’s competitive landscape.

After all, when your employees are happy, your business is more likely to thrive.
