“Wellbeing” is one of the hottest words in business today as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic

As we are in World Wellbeing Week – I’ve been talking to individuals and companies who are looking for further support because their plans are not necessarily having the impact they desire

Today I’m sharing the key themes I’m hearing from companies that I talk to.

  • How they are looking at more strategic plans
  • The top areas of focus for managers
  • The one worry that organisations have coming up.

 

 

I don’t need to remind you that the effects of the pandemic has changed people’s lives over the last 15 months. 

The massive shift to home working, exacerbated stress, mental health issues but there’s also been some positives.

There’s no doubt that things have been difficult. 

I’m now seeing that organisations are wanted to get a better approach to what they’re doing.

These are the key themes I’m hearing from companies that I talk to.

These are predominantly in Professional Services, Law, Financial areas, but also Tech, and education are common areas I talk to too.

 

Dealing with Change

The continuous change we've had over the last 15 months has been hard for people.

Listen to me explain more about that.

Make sure managers are equipped to help people deal with change.

How to Talk to People

This is no joke.  People are saying to me – I don’t know how to respond.  I don’t know what to say when someone does say they’re struggling.

 

So organisations have done a great piece of work to get their people to come forward and say they’re struggling because there’s been focus on it.

Do your managers feel comfortable having conversations with people about their mental health? Consider training and guidance to increase their confidence.

 

Support the Supporters

 

Whether it’senior leaders, HR department, MHFA or whatever, ensure you have support in there to help those who need it. 

Listen to me explain what I mean by this and how you can ensure this is in your organisation.

 

Be Strategic

We spent time doing sticking plaster workshops and plugging gaps reactively throughout covid – and that’s totally understandable – and was needed.

Now though, organisations are moving away from reactive and being pro-active in looking strategically at their overall wellbeing plan. 

Revisit my 7 steps to wellbeing episode for more detail about how to do this and listen in to this episode for a short recap.

Coaching and Training 

Are your managers equipped to have conversations in an effective way, to go about the management in the right way?  Ensure they are trained to have the right behaviours to nurture trust-based relationships with team members.

 

Healthy Boundaries in a Hybrid World

The companies I’m working with are investing in support for healthy boundaries because they are seeing that working hours are merging into the evenings and weekends, leaving their employees struggling to switch off or feeling under pressure.

As we bring in hybrid working it's important to ensure you're supporting your people with tools and techniques to maintain healthy work boundaries.

If you'd like to discuss how you can

  1. enhance your company wellbeing plan
  2. discuss virtual and in person training options
  3. ensure your leaders are on board to support the Workplace Wellbeing
