Well-being: A strategy and a responsibility
As the line between work and life blurs further, employees are demanding that organisations expand their benefits offerings to include a wide range of programmes for physical, mental, financial, and spiritual health.
Eighty-nine percent of South African respondents rate well-being as important, while 53 % say that they are not ready for this trend.
The majority of respondents state that the employee wellness/work-life programmes currently in place in their organisation include wellness counselling, in-office wellness services (such as chair massages, health fairs and health screenings), employee assistance programmes, mental health counselling, flexible work schedules, group wellness, or fitness activities.
16 % of respondents’ organisations are not working on any well-being programme, while only 4 % offer extensive well-being programmes and actively analyse the impact on productivity and efficiency.
Today, the definition of wellness has expanded dramatically to include a range of programmes aimed at not only protecting employee health, but actively boosting performance as well.
