Executives 'value employee wellbeing'
The wellbeing of employees is an increasingly important concern for many UK businesses, an expert has suggested.
According to Jilly Forster, chief executive officer of Forster Communications, wellbeing has moved from a health and safety necessity to something that many companies place at the heart of their business model.
Writing in HR Magazine, she noted that initiatives in this field can help improve staff retention, reduce employee absence and generally improve the performance and morale of firms.
"Smart businesses are joining up the dots to encourage their employees to become well connected through a new generation of wellbeing programmes," said Ms Forster.
She added that programmes to encourage physical activity are central to this, as these can ensure staff are active and healthy.
Annette Greenwood, a life coach and mentor, recently warned that stress is growing as an issue for British employees, arguing that companies need to offer help to anyone suffering from it.
