Employee wellness is not a brand-new concept. For years, employers who care about their employees have always wanted to provide a healthy workplace for their people somehow. They have tried implementing fun activities at the premises, offering meal allowances, extra days off, and many more.
However, building a “healthy workplace” doesn’t mean the same throughout the years.
People’s priorities and needs change, and employers need to take note and adjust the benefits they offer accordingly. For starters, a “live to work” culture is still a big no-no. But is it enough? And with remote/hybrid work being on the rise, and Gen Z entering the workforce, what do employers need to do to step up their game?
The concept of employee wellness at the workplace is transforming every day. Shared values, living wages, and accessible mental health support are some of the current wellbeing trends for every workplace. Making a strategic adaptation to this fast evolution can be the key to having happy and healthy employees but also retention and profit.
