Workplace health and wellbeing encompasses all parts of working life. From how employees feel about their work, the safety and quality of the work environment to overall workplace organization.

Attitudes and beliefs around workplace health and wellbeing have evolved over the past decade. It’s more widely known that employee health and wellbeing is so much bigger than addressing physical hazards. Taking care of your employees involves looking after not only their physical health, but also their mental wellbeing.

Good employee health and wellbeing is a key factor that can determine your business’ longevity and success.

What are health and wellbeing programs in the workplace?

While there are many health benefits of good work, when a working environment isn’t right, the effects on employees can be detrimental.

An employee’s health and wellbeing can often be affected by work factors including:

RedTick

Relationships with colleagues and managers

RedTick

Amount of autonomy or control they have over the way they work

RedTick

Level of involvement they have with organisational decisions

RedTick

Availability of flexible work

There are three simple ways you can improve your workplace’s health and wellbeing today.

Start talking about health and wellbeing

If you don’t know where to start, simply opening up the conversation at work about health and wellbeing allows employees the opportunity to raise issues or concerns.

Did you know that employees are most likely to seek support from a colleague, but least likely to approach Human Resources for assistance with a mental health condition?

The importance of raising awareness of employee health and wellbeing has never been more important. Doing so will not only start necessary conversations but also demonstrate your care for your employees.

Offer and EAP

Giving your employees access to a quality Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselling service is a key way to take care of their mental health and wellbeing.

EAPs are a confidential, independent, early intervention counselling service for employees. The program helps people identify and deal with issues that may be affecting their relationships, health, wellbeing and work performance.

Train your managers

Training managers in mental health (Mental Health First Aid or MHFA) allows them to identify problems early and equips them to find effective and sustainable solutions.

The State of Workplace Mental Health in Australia reported that only 39% of respondents said they would seek support from their direct managers if they had a mental health condition. Training your managers may increase the likelihood of employees confiding in their direct managers, allowing a swift and appropriate resolution.

Up-skilling managers with ergonomic and manual handling training can also make a big difference to the physical health and safety of employees. Equipping managers with the knowledge of safe workplace practices, including setting staff up with ergonomic assessments and training manager on how to identify ergonomic risk factors, as well as providing safe manual handling practices is a valuable skill all employees should have. Training reduces the physical risks to employees so they can perform at their best.
