Organizations need methods to acknowledge the wholeness of employee experiences to promote a culture of support and wellness as we attempt to return to work.
As a society, we are living in unprecedented times of exacerbated stress. Balancing how one is experiencing the world and the demands of the workplace can feel overwhelming leaving individuals in a heightened state. Employers lack of understanding regarding employee needs and experiences they inevitably bring into the workplace can create additional stressors and affect work culture. Organizations need methods to acknowledge the wholeness of employee experiences to promote a culture of support and wellness as we attempt to return to work.
The wellness intervention consists of spaces for employees to talk about issues that they are facing, and have a safe space to unpack challenges and discuss things they are grappling with. These challenges and tough issues inevitably impact personal wellness and thus work culture. The Workplace Wellness Intervention will demonstrate to employees that you see and care about the wholeness of their humanity.
Promoting employee wellness requires creating a space for group process whereby employees share what they are experiencing in the world and how it has affected them. Implementing such a space requires protected time, development of psychological safety, and professional facilitation. Creating this intentional space of dialogue and reflection exemplifies an organization's commitment to and the importance of employee wellness. HCAS can work with you and your leadership to determine the best method for delivery.
A commitment to this shift in culture will result in 1) Employees feeling seen and heard, thus mitigating stressors, and 2) Increase in positive work culture and relationships which leads to a more productive workspace.
