Employee Well Being – A significant and additional HR Function

Employee Well Being-Significant Addition to the HR function
0

Employee Well Being – HR Function which evolves to a full time dedicated role for Organizations who invest in their employees.

HR Executives are giving priority to employee well-being. When it comes to promoting mental health and wellbeing, the straightforward act of letting your people know you hear and understand them as individuals first can go a long way. By allowing for flexibility in employees’ schedules, businesses can enhance this support. Building workplace resilience and mental health requires a focus on fostering employee well-being.

Employee well-being and mental health are always important and is/should be a key priority by Organizations/senior HR leaders.
Reading thru researches, interestingly enough we discovered that flexible scheduling is contributing to employee well being.

Offering the opportunity to train on empathy/leadership by assessing correctly
Financing corporate subscriptions for online counselling and meditation apps, adding enhanced well-being benefits like free online counselling sessions for Managers and training for compassionate leadership.
The number of companies offering workplace wellness solutions is expanding significantly.

Employee well-being has evolved in recent years to include not just their physical health but also their emotional, financial, social, career, community, and purposeful lives. The increased demand for flexibility in how, where,
and when employees work is at the core of this.
For example, Exercise, sleep, general lifestyle, and dietary decisions are just a few of the numerous facets that make up physical wellness.

Forward-thinking businesses are emphasising the value of regular routines to improve physical wellbeing.
Additionally balance between work and life should be improved. Employers may be responding to this by implementing a variety of talent policies, such as higher salaries, improved learning and development opportunities,
new positions available within the organization could offer the opportunity of transferring employees should they wish to and are equipped to take on such a role, and online coaching and training to assist staff become stronger in adjusting to major modifications and new working practises.

Employee Financial strain:
A recommendation could be that businesses could create emergency savings accounts that can be automatically taken from employees’ paychecks and help them save for unforeseen expenses.
After all, you can’t spend money that you can’t see.

Values
Organisations are grounded in their purpose by a set of values, and we feel that people today
are increasingly looking for employers whose values align with their own. The desire of employees to work for businesses that share their values will be a crucial factor in choosing a new job.
New hires anticipate their employer to actively participate in and voice their opinions regarding the current cultural disputes as the labour market continues to rapidly evolve.

Today we find that Managers/Executives put more effort to offer employee well-being as a chance to support staff in all facets of their personal and professional life, not simply as an employee benefit.
