Well-Being IS a Winning Business Strategy

Watch the news on any given day and we know our world is getting exponentially more complex. Global pandemics, diversity awareness, work-from-home and technology expansion, evolving generations and security concerns have impacted our working environments. At the same time, physical and mental health, family development, inclusive and flexible working environments, financial health and meaningful work influence how we show up to work every-day.

Successful companies of the future will be the ones who figure out how to conjugate this ever-growing complex people world with their business strategy, creating both employee and business health and wealth.

As we have witnessed in the past few months, and expect to deal with for the foreseeable future, taking care of employees, and supporting them as they take care of themselves, is a business strategy that is needed now more than ever. Comprehensive well-being programs that encapsulate the full range of employee health/security/flexibility/diverse needs (not simply health programs) are no longer a nice to have when budget allows – they are a must have for revenue growth.

Science anchors the fact that a supported and well-cared for employee thinks more strategically, approaches their work more creatively, is more engaged at work and leads their teams with more emotional intelligence. And by doing so, impacts the company’s bottom line in real numbers.

So how do we get our leadership to understand that business revenue and employee well-being are truly interconnected – beyond simply saving money on health benefit platforms or having baseline approaches to Inclusion and Diversity? At the same time, how do we ensure employees understand that taking care of themselves is just as important as getting their deliverables in on time?

Gayle Hilgendorff has been in the position of developer, convincer and implementer. During this session she will make a business case for prioritizing well-being in the business environment – for our leadership, our employees and our revenue. And we may spend a few moments on our own personal well-being – because change starts with each of us individually.
