Holistic Approach to WellbeingIllustrates a happy employee

Wellbeing is often thought to be about being happy, wealthy, successful, or being in good physical health. But true holistic wellbeing looks at all of the physical, mental, financial, and social aspects together. That could be taking time for an activity that we enjoy every day, being financially secure or contributing more to society. Most healthcare providers and employers tend to look at each of these areas individually. However, this new approach to employee wellbeing provides wellbeing support that combines each of these areas and impacts upon overall wellbeing. Some benefits of a holistic approach to employee wellbeing are:

  • Increased employee engagement
  • Increased organisational performance
  • Ability to recruit and retain the best talent
  • Lower absence costs
  • Improved service quality
  • Provides a return on investment

The 2020 Health and Wellbeing at Work Survey from the Chartered Institute of Professional Development (CIPD) found that the top three benefits of employers increasing their focus on employee wellbeing are: better employee morale and engagement, a healthier and more inclusive culture, and a lower sickness absence. The HRDirector also reported an increase in satisfaction and loyalty levels. So, what can we learn from employee wellbeing becoming an increasingly important topic? It’s time to implement a new approach.

How to Realise the Benefits of Employee Wellbeing

Cantium has designed a new approach to employee wellbeing. Our approach provides you with insight into:

  • Your current wellbeing strategy
  • What your staff value
  • What your organisation values

Taking this information to develop a comprehensive and holistic employee wellbeing programme will ensure your success. However, your new wellbeing strategy must be rolled out in a way that maximises uptake and has the biggest impact. Cantium supports you in this with:

  • Tailored communication plan
  • Employee engagement sessions
  • Encouraging senior management engagement and promotion

The only way to know if your new employee engagement programme has worked is to review the outcomes. By asking your staff about their experience, you can learn what has worked and what can be improved upon. This never-ending cycle of improvement and development ensures that you are able to provide your employees with a holistic employee wellbeing programme that is tailored to their ever-changing needs. This approach provides you with real results and feedback on your programme, where your return on investment can be reviewed and realised.
