Beyond the buzzwords: Why employee wellbeing is critical for success
Employee engagement, employer branding, staff wellbeing, workplace culture. These phrases have quickly become part of the business vernacular, but what do they actually mean? How do these concepts affect your firm, and why should you care about them?
Good people are hard to find, they’re even harder to keep hold of. Unsurprisingly, there are very few people who would be happy to stay in a role where they feel undervalued. In today’s competitive market, offering something more than the standard is key to preventing employees from handing in their notice and keeping staff turnover to a minimum.
Creating an environment your team are happy to work in every day not only contributes to their wellbeing, but also maximises productivity; inspiring your team to deliver excellence on your behalf. To put it another way - look after your people and they’ll look after your clients.
High staff churn damages credibility. Your clients want to build a relationship with your firm, and that means getting to know the people who work there. If staff leave regularly, it can be impossible to foster lasting business relationships.
Well-trained and supported staff will give consistently excellent service to your clients. Moreover, by empowering your people and creating a culture that makes them feel they are part of something important, you will turn employees into your most vocal brand-ambassadors.
