Given we spend one third of our lives at work, your working environment can have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing.
The key to creating and sustaining a high-performing organisation is establishing a healthy work environment, which is vital in increasing employee morale, productivity and wellbeing.
However, this kind of culture is hard to define, let alone put it into practice. Instead of standalone initiatives that often do not have sustainable results, it is important that companies focus on determining what really makes their employees tick all while integrating employee wellbeing into all processes.
At JBAndrews we believe a healthy work environment is one that provides employees with both a physically and mentally safe workspace, putting their needs above all.
Good communication throughout a team is essential. Have an open-door policy with management so everyone can offer new ideas. 33% of employees said a lack of open, honest communication has the most negative impact on employee morale. Transparency is key!
The wellbeing of your employees will have a direct impact on your company’s success, therefore regular mental health sessions and time for workouts are essential. Nearly 70% of employees would participate in workplace wellness programs, if provided by their companies. Good health is good business!
The physical space of the office is also important. Having an open, collaborative environment inspires a social atmosphere. Studies by Office Genie have found that a strong office design can make employees up to 33% happier.
