Currently, mental wellbeing is high up on most agendas for many obvious reasons. The reality for many employers right now is that their workforce is hugely divided in its experiences – people may be physically unwell, lonely and isolated, busy caring for dependents, homeschooling or feel burnout from work encroaching on their home space. Much of this is not visible to employers.
Even though the context is hugely different to a year ago, what remains the same is the framework for understanding how to strategically manage workforce wellbeing. We look across four key dimensions: the individual worker, job-related factors, the working environment and the organisational context. For example, maintaining trust when remote working, managing performance, adapting operational processes or how to manage organisational change.
