IMPROVING EMOTIONAL WELLBEING FOR THE WORKPLACE
Life isn’t always easy, and everyone will face periods of emotional challenge. While these difficulties might not originate in the workplace, they can have an impact on how you feel at work.
According to the 2008 HSA Workplace Health and Wellbeing Strategy, “There is clear evidence that the promotion of health in the workplace is effective. In addition to the beneficial impact on the health of individual employees, organisations that have implemented health promotion programmes gain other related benefits, including increased productivity, improved morale, more motivated employees, improved company profile and enhanced ability to attract employees.”
In developed countries, the portion of employers that now offer their employees access to stress-reduction programs of some kind stands at 35% and growing. Companies like Google have invested in employee health & happiness driving our significant results. Remarkably, Employee Satisfaction has risen 37%.
Why are happy employees 12% more productive?
Professor Alex Edmans of The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania discovered that businesses with high levels of employee satisfaction perform better than those without. A recent study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers proved 10% less productive. Professor Andrew Oswald, one of three researchers who led the study, said companies that invest in employee support and satisfaction tend to succeed in generating happier workers.
