Episode 57 – Employee Wellbeing: Is it Important Or Are We Just Ticking a Box?
It’s clear that there has been an increase in employee wellbeing programs in our workplaces in recent years. This is a positive step, because a focus on mental health is definitely required, especially where we spend much of our time – at work!
However, I’ve also noticed that these programs will be introduced without the necessarily changes in behaviour that need to go with them. Everything else stays the same – the stress, deadlines and micromanagement.
In this episode I discuss what is required to actually make a difference in employee wellbeing, so that we make this more than just a “tick the box” exercise.
