WORKPLACE WELLBEING & PERFORMANCE
"Investments in workplace wellbeing is no longer optional. It is essential for both the wellbeing of employees and the success of organizations. Organizations that promote wellbeing don’t just create a healthier and more productive workforce; they build a competitive advantage for the future."
"A large-scale study found that wellbeing predicts outstanding job performance."
Paul B. Lester, Ed Diener, And Martin Seligman, MIT Sloan Management Review, February 16, 2022
In the US, absent workers cost employers $150 billion per year, but those who came
to work and were not fully productive cost $1,500 billion per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2021).
The expected return on investment for every $1 spent on wellbeing is 12X (Xero, 2021).
WORKPLACE WELLBEING & PERFORMANCE PROJECT
An organization's long-term success or failure is highly dependent on the wellbeing of its workforce. Numerous studies have shown a correlation between workplace wellbeing and performance metrics. Transformational leaders appreciate that their most valuable assets are human capital and acknowledge an indisputable bidirectional benefit in addressing workplace wellbeing. Employee stress, burnout, absenteeism, quiet quitting, job hopping, physical health, mental health, and performance issues may result from a lack of awareness in promoting workplace wellbeing.
“The pandemic has made it clear that investing in wellbeing intelligence is no longer optional; it’s essential for both the wellbeing of employees and the success of organizations. Organizations that promote wellbeing intelligence don’t just create a healthier and more productive workforce; they build a competitive advantage for the future.” (Roulet & Bhatti, 2023 MIT Sloan Management Review)
