1. Consider flexibility in a new light
With greater work flexibility employees can alleviate stress, take care of their needs and be more productive when they are working. Remote work, hybrid work and returning to the office are all being considered by employers, but employees may need even more than you realize. According to our wellbeing mindset study, a better balance is the #1 answer from employees when asked what could improve their wellbeing the most. But it’s not just about balance. It’s about doing things that matter to their mind, body, wallet and life. In fact, one third of employees also said they were spending more than 5 hours every month each on financial, physical, and mental health tasks while working. What if we thought out of the box to give them that flexibility and time – like a shorter work week, additional wellness hours or a designated day of the month just for wellbeing.
