Getting wellbeing right
Wellbeing is a topic that has (historically) been dismissed by some employers; those with the attitude of “employees get paid a wage so they must be happy!”
This is, in most cases, due to a lack of knowledge when it comes to the fruitful ‘win-win’ benefits of paying attention to employee wellbeing.
Wellbeing is defined as “the state of feeling healthy and happy”. This may all sound a little 1970’s ‘hippie’, however, there are growing catalogues of research that stress the importance of the wellbeing concept.
