employee wellbeing hr advice hull and east yorkshire

Employee wellbeing is more than just a buzz word it’s an essential component of ensuring your team are engaged and supported to help you drive your business forward.

Effective wellbeing programmes are more than just a phase, they are becoming an established part of workplace cultures as society changes and so do the expectations of employees.

Sickness absence costs the UK economy over £14bn per annum, or £554 per employee and employers that ignore wellbeing risk absenteeism, poor performance and added costs.

A well balanced wellbeing programme is tailored around your Company’s needs but is likely to include things like:

  • Health promotion
  • Positive work environment
  • Flexible working
  • Positive relationships
  • Opportunities to grow careers
  • Healthy management style

’60 per cent of employees say they’d feel more motivated and more likely to recommend their organisation as a good place to work if their employer took action to support mental wellbeing’ (mind)
