Employee wellbeing

Employee wellbeing encompasses an employer-driven initiative aimed at fostering the physical and emotional health of employees, with the aim of either preventing issues from arising or assisting employees in managing them effectively when they do occur. Many employers implement employee wellbeing programs or initiatives geared towards promoting healthier lifestyles and reducing instances of sickness absence. These programs often include employee assistance programs, offering confidential counseling services for individuals facing personal crises or workplace-related challenges such as stress, bullying, or harassment.

Wellbeing is a complex subject, addressing not only physical health but also mental health in the workplace, alongside considerations of disability issues. It involves collaboration among various stakeholders, including senior managers, line managers, supervisors, HR personnel, health and safety managers, and occupational health practitioners.

This discourse explores the rationale behind employers investing in employee wellbeing programs and outlines strategies for enhancing the welfare of their workforce. Further information on this topic can be found in related discussions on Stress at Work and Mental Health at Work.
