​Employee wellbeing is a vital component of a healthy workplace, improving employee engagement, job satisfaction, productivity and happiness. An effective employee engagement strategy can enable a business to run more effectively as employees work together better and bring greater innovation to their projects.

Employers who do not take notice of employee engagement are likely to experience a higher rate of sickness absence and also turnover.

How can employers can boost engagement?
  • Offer training on top of on-the-job style learning and shadowing of existing staff – this can be specifically related to their job area or more general training to improve skills such as resilience

  • Create a positive culture – team building activities and social events encourage different teams to interact and help to strengthen relationships

  • Offer ongoing development and training – pay attention to each employees individual goals and needs

  • Ensure good management – recognise employees efforts and provide constructive feedback

  • Provide flexible working conditions
