We talk about ‘employee well being’, ‘job satisfaction’ ‘happiness’ etc as if these were new models or standards sometimes - another box to tick. But of course looking after our people has never been more important - particularly after the last 18 months of course, although this has simply helped to focus on the issue. Its vital that we are good and sustainable employers, who take out employees physical and mental health seriously and act upon that. Its a good thing to do and it makes good business sense too, as engaged and fulfilled workers are known to deliver high(er) standards of work than those who are poorly treated. A sustainable work environment means that people like working there and want to stay, rather than people constantly leaving and causing high levels of attrition, higher cost of hiring etc.
