Promoting true employee wellbeing
We provide a suite of benefits aimed at maintaining the balance between employee physical, emotional and financial wellbeing, ensuring staff stay healthy. We believe in the triangle of wellbeing – if an employee is suffering in one area - financial, emotional or physical - it will often manifest itself in one or both of the other areas. A truly all-inclusive health and wellness programme acknowledges and supports employees at each point of the triangle, promoting true employee wellbeing.
Physical wellbeing is not just the absence of disease, it includes lifestyle behaviour choices that promote good health, avoid preventable diseases and conditions, and to live in a balanced state of body and mind. When it comes to physical wellness, it is well known that we should all do more exercise every day. It is understandable that not everyone has time or is able to do this but making slight changes around the workplace and providing workplace incentives can definitely help boost your staff physical wellbeing. Not only beneficial to your overall health, it is proven that exercise is good for maintaining good mental wellbeing, which is mutually beneficial to both the person and the workplace.
Emotional wellbeing incorporates an employee's self-esteem, confidence, mental health and psychological resilience. Good emotional wellbeing is important both at home and in the workplace, as employees with better mental wellbeing are often better equipped to recover from illness, deal with change and address challenges. Supporting employee mental health through employee benefits can include everything from the traditional employee assistance programme, flexible working and absence policies, to mindfulness training and mental health first aiders.
Financial wellbeing is closely linked to an employee's physical and emotional wellbeing. Good financial wellbeing is when employees enjoy control over day-to-day, month-to-month finances, and have the capacity to absorb any financial surprises. As finances are such a personal thing, employees can find it difficult to seek help for these worries, especially at work. However, there are a growing range of financial wellness products and services that can help employees cope with the financial pressures they face both inside and outside of work. These include salary sacrifice schemes to help with the cost of car parking, cars or home technology, financial education and fair value loans, and even insurance products to help financially should employees have to stay in hospital.
