What is well-being?

Employee well-being is defined as the overall mental, physical, emotional and economic health of employees. It’s influenced by various factors such as relationships with co-workers, how employees feel about their work, working environment and the tools and resources they have access to.

Why is well-being important?

Research shows that well-being is important to productivity as well as a key factor in determining an organization’s long-term effectiveness. 

Many organizations adopt well-being initiatives because they recognize that their most important resources are their people. In addition to creating a healthy and happy workforce, well-being initiatives increase employee morale, loyalty, productivity, motivation and retention and reduce presenteeism.
