What choices have we got as far as making our jobs and work environment a good place to be?
Recognition and money does not necessarily mean satisfaction and contentment at work.
The ethos, values and atmosphere of a company can make all the difference to why an employee chooses to stay with an employer.
So what responsibility towards their staffs’ wellbeing does a company have? Where is the employees own responsibility?
We all have to take charge of our wellbeing as much as we can. On a practical level that can be healthy eating, exercise and sleep. On an emotional level, communication and connection goes a long way.
In order to create these relationships and maintain them, there has to be a commitment and understanding from both employer and employee.
To suffer mental health issues can feel like a very vulnerable place to be. It takes courage to talk to a manager about it and ask for help.
An employer/manager needs to be approachable and empathic in order for employees to communicate with them. Employees also have to be better equipped to understand colleagues differences and needs to enable a harmonious work place.
This is where we can help. We can ensure your management and staff are trained and understand what is needed to grow and keep the company family together.
