A QUICK OVERVIEW
Among the many ways COVID-19 has changed the way we live is a surge in value placed on health and wellness. With a heightened awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, people have become more conscious of preventive measures such as regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and sufficient sleep to enhance overall well-being.
COVID-19 has also brought attention to the significant toll daily life takes on mental health. The stress, anxiety, and isolation associated with the pandemic served as catalysts for individuals to seek professional help, practice self-care, and embrace mindfulness and meditation to cope with the accumulated emotional challenges brought about by the pandemic.
This drastic shift in societal values has resulted in an increased emphasis on holistic health and well-being. Companies are investing in employee wellness programs, governments are implementing better health policies, and communities are developing initiatives to promote health and wellness post-pandemic. This recognition of the interconnectedness of physical, mental, and emotional health is paving the way for a society that is better equipped to cultivate and support the well-being of its members.
UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE
The detrimental effects of a lack of wellness initiatives in the workplace are multi-faceted. Without a robust corporate wellness program, employees are less equipped to handle stress, resulting in poor decision-making and problem-solving, as well as decreased engagement, collaboration, and productivity.
This leads to lower job satisfaction, burnout, and eventually higher employee turnover. The consequences then bleed into the rest of the company’s operations, resulting in increased costs associated with recruitment and training.
In this Real-World Solution Spotlight, The Executive Centre talks about how they have built an environment that nurtures and protects their employees’ well-being, sharing the responsibility to take care of their physical and mental health and making each team member feel seen, valued, and supported.
