SmartHR’s wellbeing solutions can help to identify current levels of wellbeing within an organisation in order that effective Wellbeing Programmes can be created and implemented to boost overall company morale and wellness. Let us partner with you to keep wellbeing on the strategic agenda and implement frameworks to support your managers and staff in managing wellbeing in the workplace. 

CREATING A WELLBEING PROGRAMME THAT REFLECTS YOUR BUSINESS

What do we mean by Wellbeing?

Wellbeing Programmes continue to be as popular as ever, indeed, they have continued to evolve and can now be considered to be part of the strategic toolkit in the delivery of our businesses. Since the impact of Covid-19 has been felt, more specific, bespoke wellbeing programmes to meet the requirements of the organisation have been developed. Mental health wellbeing and financial wellbeing have become popular strands of some Wellbeing Programmes and enable a visible way of not only providing a framework of support but also, of evidencing to the workforce, the personal and professional commitment to them by the organisation.

What benefits could a Wellbeing Programme provide?

Boost overall company morale and wellness – promoting positive behavioural change and healthy habits at work
Increased staff morale and engagement – specific areas of wellbeing support identified to enable targeted action planning to improve wellbeing at work
Improved productivity and improved job satisfaction – to foster an energetic, collaborative, and cohesive workforce
Improved relationships – offers tools to deal with stress, fatigue, anxiety and other contributors to conflict
Reduced costs – reduced levels of absence, shorter periods of absence, reduced pressure on colleagues providing cover, and supporting litigation avoidance
Reduced stress – improved awareness of ‘stress busting’ techniques and prompts
Improved resilience – in adapting to change and adopting a flexible approach to others
Improved recruitment and staff retention – visibility of corporate commitment to wellbeing, and part of an organisation’s strategy to become an ‘employer of choice’

Are all Wellbeing Programmes the same?

Wellbeing Programmes should be customised to reflect the needs of your organisation and its culture. Common elements include raising awareness around mental health and physical wellbeing; but could also include improving financial wellbeing, understanding intellectual wellbeing needs (such as careers) or identifying community initiatives of particular interest.

Legal compliance

Undoubtedly, the best reason for introducing a Wellbeing Programme is that it’s the ‘right thing to do’ for both the workforce and the effectiveness of the organisation. However, IOM legislative caselaw (particularly, linked to the Employment Act 2006 and the Equality Act 2017) illustrates the increasing need for employers to consider mental health and physical health in the application of policies, procedures and overall health and safety at work.

  • “I would highly recommend Gail; her work has been hugely transformational to our business. The last year would have been a lot tougher without the ability to lean on Gail as an extended member of our team.”

    Jamie Lewis – Managing Director, Extra Fancy – May 2022
  • “Mamta clearly demonstrated that the role of a line manager is not simply about; organising work, monitoring work process and budgets but how their role interfaces with the human resources department and the wider organisation. How as a line manager you are empowered to improve employee engagement and motivation using simple techniques and processes such and coaching and motivation. Mamta also took you through the more challenging issues of being a line manager; how these should be initiated, potential red flags and when you should request assistance. As a result of this course I am now more confident to tackle potential issues, have difficult conversations and know that it’s okay not to know the answer….HR are always happy to help.”
