10 solutions for the well-being of your employees

Promote Your Employees’ Wellness

Labour shortages, employee turnover, growing media reports, telecommuting issues… All these reasons show that employee wellness is essential today.
Supported by our Healthy Enterprise Elite+ certification, our team has decided to share with you 10 solutions to help you retain your best talent, reduce monetary losses due to employee turnover and improve your organizational performance.

Ensure quality of life at work
According to Statistics Canada, a normal work week for employees on a fixed salary is 36.9 hours on average. If you’re going to spend that much time in the office, you might as well be comfortable.

Provide a workplace free of harassment or violence
With the amendment to the Act respecting labour standards, employers are obliged since January 1, 2019, to have a policy for the prevention of psychological harassment and the handling of complaints.

Encourage flexible work schedules
Telecommuting and flexible schedules have quickly become considerable advantages and are prized by workers. Think of the hours spent in transportation to get to work. This type of measure fits in with the lifestyles of your different employees.

Develop Skills
The need to grow and develop professional skills is present in many employees. Providing your employees with the opportunity to develop their skills fosters their motivation and maximizes their productivity.

Promote Healthy Lifestyle Habits
Does your company offer incentives to encourage your employees to adopt healthy lifestyle habits? Daily fresh fruits and vegetables, workout programs and participation in sports challenges are good examples.

Recognize the Work Done
Recognizing the value of your employees’ work is an important element in mobilizing and retaining staff. Organizing an annual recognition event, planning team sports activities, providing special attention, or creating a merit board are good examples of how to thank your employees.

Manage Stress
Does your company offer concrete measures to equip its employees to manage stress? You could resolve to eliminate stressors, increase resistance to stress or treat psychological health problems.

Offer Opportunities for Advancement
For many employees, changing jobs or taking on a more important role in the company is very important. When this need is not met, the company may see a significant increase in turnover. There are a variety of strategies to address this need, such as increasing job diversity, rotating positions and adding tasks traditionally assigned to managers such as planning, organizing, and controlling.

Implementing Financial Benefits
A voluntary bonus program based on your workers’ performance can be a major motivator. Your employees should expect to achieve the set goals without putting in efforts beyond the merits of the bonus.

Retain employees
Involving your employees by giving them a voice allows you to become aware of workplace issues and take actions that will have a positive impact on their satisfaction.

So where do you start?

  • Conduct an anonymous employee survey
  • Develop an improvement plan based on the results
  • Adopt collaborative management with employees

Before taking any action to improve your employees’ well-being, you need to make sure you know where your company stands and what your employees’ specific needs are. Once you have this information in hand, you are ready to act and have a positive impact on their satisfaction.
