Wellbeing at Work

When people are well they do well. Happy, healthy and engaged employees work harder and smarter, directly improving your bottom line.

What is wellbeing at work?

Wellbeing at Work offers a range of strategies and programmes that help people be at their best at work, rest and play. Work is a big part of our life. On any given work day, we spend 50 percent of our waking hours at work. For some it is much more.

 

Wellbeing at work is about creating an environment and culture in which your businesses’ greatest asset, your employees, thrive, by supporting their physical, mental, emotional, social, creative and financial wellbeing. Providing solutions to the stressful challenges of modern life and business, wellbeing at work is the central pillar to support a healthy workforce of valuable ambassadors, who in turn create a healthy organization with healthy relationships and business performance and profits.

Why wellbeing at work?

Wellbeing is no longer a nice to have but a need to have (Harvard Business Review).

Over 80% of employees are suffering with increased stress levels (Mercer 2015), leading to a knock-on effect on personal wellbeing, performance and increased costs to the organisation. When people are stressed some get tired, some get anxious, some get sick. 7 in 10 employees are likely to stay longer with employers interested in their wellbeing, while 1 in 2 would consider leaving those who don’t support their wellbeing (FDI 2017). Creating a culture of wellbeing makes you an employer of choice, helping you attract, support and keep employees that perform, add value and deliver.

 

Stress is predicted to be the leading cause of chronic illness in high-income countries by 2030 (Healthy Ireland 2015). Stress compromises decision making, communication, increases mistakes and causes physical disease (Harvard Business Review 2017, WHO). With over 4 million days lost in Ireland to absenteeism annually in small businesses alone, looking after your employees health and wellbeing has never been so important.

 

Wellbeing is about more than avoiding absenteeism, it’s a solution to promote ‘presenteeism’ and high-performance.  Wasting just one hour a day accumulates to 6 weeks of absenteeism across a year! By supporting a healthy happy team, your organisation can benefit from a workforce who are connected and want to succeed individually and collectively. Economists at the University of Warwick have found that happy employees increase productivity by 12%. Employees with good social wellbeing and best friends in the workplace report stronger company connection and are 27% more likely to engage with the company mission.

 

Putting wellbeing at the heart of what you do is a crucial investment in your organisation's business performance.

"We are a team of people who work collaboratively and co-operatively on a wide range of events and services as directed by our Members. We recently participated in a nine session programme with Calodagh McCumiskey of Spiritual Earth and had 100% attendance throughout the programme. Calodagh carefully created a wellbeing and coaching programme for Wexford Chamber. The directive was to assist in the personal development and growth of our organisation in order that our business continue to run at its most effective and productive level. Our staff are our greatest asset and this coaching has helped boost morale, improve communication and in turn has created a very enthusiastic team of people who are refocused on turning out high quality work. Spiritual Earth, through Calodagh, is a highly professional and experienced organisation. I am very happy to recommend this valuable resource to anybody who is focused on looking after their staff and rewarding them/re-engaging with them in order to maintain enthusiasm and productivity. They are worth it!"
