Workplace Wellbeing: A Cornerstone of Future Offices | Just Eat for Business

Just Eat for Business Stand: 3a/C24

Once seen as a 'nice to have', workplace wellbeing has become a central focus in modern organisational strategies, profoundly influencing employee health, satisfaction, and overall productivity. Today, it encompasses a multifaceted approach to employee welfare. It goes beyond traditional healthcare benefits, incorporating mental health support, work-life balance, physical wellness initiatives, and a positive workplace culture.

There's no doubt that the pandemic significantly shifted businesses' priorities when it comes to workplace wellbeing. The necessity for remote work, while providing flexibility, also blurred the lines between professional and personal life, requiring a more empathetic approach from employers. Mercer’s Global Talent Trends report found that 80% of organisations worldwide were enhancing their wellbeing programs post-pandemic, which suggests it's essential for fostering a positive and productive work environment. 

What makes up a successful workplace wellbeing strategy?

There are several strategies that businesses can implement in order to foster a motivated, satisfied workforce (thus increasing productivity and innovation). 

1. Work-Life Balance and Flexible Policies

Recognising the importance of work-life balance, many companies are offering flexible work hours and remote work options as standard. This approach not only promotes work-life balance but also enhances employee satisfaction and productivity.

2. Physical Wellbeing Initiatives

Encouraging physical activity is another pivotal aspect of employee wellbeing. Many organisations provide access to fitness facilities or subsidised gym memberships, helping to enhance physical health and overall wellness.

3. Creating Inclusive and Diverse Workplaces

Inclusivity is crucial for mental health. Implementing diversity and inclusion training programs fosters a sense of belonging and helps employees feel valued.

4. Encouraging collaboration and community 

When employees feel a stronger sense of community in the workplace, they often experience an increase in emotional support. This can act as a buffer against stress and workplace pressures, significantly enhancing overall employee wellbeing.

5. Recognition and Appreciation

Regular recognition of employee achievements and milestones significantly contributes to mental wellbeing - it can help to enhance their sense of value within the organisation.
