We've all grown up with the idea that being an adult means you take responsibility for yourself. But as employees, we spend the majority of our waking hours at work... thinking about work, doing work, going to and from work and now, even living with work. Wellbeing is purposefully holistic - it pertains to so many different domains of our lives and with so much of our lives (and those domains of health) dictated by our jobs, doesn't it make sense that we think about the role our companies play in helping our ability to flourish?
In referencing the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development factsheet they lay out a very compelling case for the role of organizations in supporting the wellbeing of employees. Although the information is now labeled as 'pre-Covid' much of their references are relevant for today's concerns.
How what role does your company play in supporting wellbeing? What do you expect from them as it relates to your ability to thrive?
