Supporting your staff’s health and well-being can help you improve employee morale and efficiency in the workplace. It is a fact that companies who invest in their employee’s well-being are rewarded when it comes to productivity and absence levels. The simple fact is that employees reciprocate the support they receive from employers by performing well in their job roles.
What are some ways you can support your employees well being in 2021?

Taking the time to catch up with your team can allow you to build a better relationship with them and find out how they are getting on each day. The more in tune you are with your team, the easier it will be for you to pick up on any little changes in feeling or productivity and allow you to address them quickly.
Have A Dedicated Member Of Staff
Have a point of contact for everyone to come out with any wellbeing concerns or issues. This can help you to accumulate all the information into one place and have this supported by those higher up. Allow everyone the freedom to converse freely with this point of contact whenever needed.
Buy The Appropriate Tools
This can be from having the right equipment in the workplace to do their job role completely or having processes in place to support flexible or remote working, so there isn’t a loss of productivity.
Ask what everyone needs to be able to do their job properly and make sure you have it when they need it. From purchasing CHOOB® products to allow your employees to stay safe when travelling for meetings or crowded areas on-site, to providing the technology to allow them to work remotely and contact clients without having to meet up face to face during the covid pandemic and beyond.
Use Data and Feedback to Improve
There is always room to improve, and by allowing your employees to voice their wellbeing needs for both work and their home life, you can continually improve what you do and how you work to provide solutions to meet the feedback provided. Your employees will thank you in the long run for the attention to detail and support provided to them as they need it.
Encourage Time Off
A healthy work-life balance is vital for everyone. Encourage people to use their holidays and sick days along with taking regular breaks. Everyone needs time to decompress, and taking regular breaks is important for productivity, or you run the risk of burning out. So make sure people know that breaks, lunch hours, sick days are allowed and won’t look bad on them or affect their standing within the company.
Celebrate The Small Things
Never overlook the small wins; they are just as important, if not more so than the big ones. After all, if you don’t have the smaller details, you can’t get the bigger wins. Allow your employees to feel appreciated for everything and all the success, not just the major achievements, as this will boost morale and encourage them to reach further.
