Your Business With James Caan 2017 - 246
How you can lead your own
The workplace wellbeing revolution is happening. Businesses now recognise
the importance of supporting mental and physical wellbeing. Wellness
programmes have become an established norm, with large corporations investing
in employee health not just to show they care, but to boost performance too
The issue has even become political, as you
may have heard with the announcement of
Theresa May's mental health plan for wellbeing
in the workplace.
Small businesses have
plenty to gain from
strategy. Small shifts in
attitude can lead to big
improvements for the
wellbeing of your team
For you, the idea of on-site gyms, in-house
life coaches, and away days to expensive yoga
retreats may be unrealistic. And given the
day-to-day pressures of running a business,
trying to implement a wellbeing strategy can
feel like one more addition to the countless
other demands on your time.
Yet supporting your workers' wellbeing needn't
mean forking out for expensive in-house luxuries.
Some of the most effective changes you can
make are cultural and effectively free to
implement and maintain. You just need to
shift your thinking a little.
