Absenteeism, demotivation and low productivity are all issues that arise when wellbeing is ignored and people are treated like cogs in a machine, rather than human beings. Negativity can infect organisations like a virus. And most of the time that’s your fault because you have not paid enough attention to wellbeing. Leaders and organisations have a duty of care to make sure their people are supported to be well and happy. Ignore this at your peril.
Wellbeing deficient organisations struggle to retain good people, they lose time and resources through sickness and they become problematic and uncompetitive. Wellbeing impacts directly on bottom line. Research proves that higher levels of wellbeing result in contented, productive, creative workers who take fewer sick days, earn more and are valued highly.
