A research-backed approach for the important ways in which organisations support employees
When companies care for employees — in every part of their experience — employees can better care for themselves, their teams and their company, leading to better people and business results.
Based on research, at Limeade we believe that organisations show care through organisational support, which includes support from managers, teams, peers, leaders and more. It is this complete approach to caring for employees that delivers results and can have an impact on your culture.
Organisational support is critical to showing your employees care. Limeade Institute research has found that when employees feel cared for:
8 Drivers of Organisational Support
Nearly all employees say their immediate managers matter the most for well-being support at work. Limeade gives them the guidance and support they need to motivate their teams.
With help from the Limeade team on strategy and promotion, manager-facilitated well-being challenges contributed to a 4% improvement in employee engagement.1
Connect teams and peers
Limeade helps employees to build real relationships with peers through team challenges, cheers and social recognition. A public utility company used Limeade to encourage employees to share their favourite books and build connections across teams.
Companies who use Limeade see 7x higher engagement from employees who have a “best friend at work”. 2
Enhance social networks
High-performing organisations benefit from the power of relationships and social well-being. They are 3x more likely to emphasise community well-being and 3x more likely to have online social communities related to well-being.3 Limeade supports easy peer-to-peer outreach with things like cheers customised to your company values and support for champions within your organisation.
One customer saw a 12% increase in employee participation with Limeade-assisted programme champions promoting programme benefits.
Improve physical workplaces
The physical work environment can have a strong impact on employee well-being and engagement. One of our customers used Limeade to offer tips on healthy work-from-home lighting and noise-levels in the wake of COVID-19.
87% of employees want healthier workspaces.4
Employee engagement is based on senior leaders who build trust and confidence.5 Limeade gives leaders the platform to scale their stories and inspire the whole company.
The registration percentage is 8 points higher for Limeade customers with above-average “My leaders inspire me” scores.
Organisational culture is the single most important factor in determining an organisation’s success or failure.1 Limeade allows you to emphasise culture in daily interactions with employees — with a video from a CEO or an activity customised to your values. 80% of employees say company culture influences how much effort they put into a job.6
Reinforce strategic alignment
Limeade allows you to reach your people with one voice that supports company initiatives, like the healthcare system that used an integrated Limeade programme to bolster their philosophy of whole-person care. Strategically aligned organisations outperform those that lack a clear vision.7
Deliver tools and resources
Our research shows that employees report better outcomes when they see information as flowing freely and accurately throughout their organisation.1
