With the dramatic increase of employees working from home and a call for leaders to shift their mindset to truly care for employees — 2020 has put the employee experience (EX) front and center. Limeade research on employee well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic found that 72% of employees say they’re currently burned out, compared to 42% from the same study last year. A post-coronavirus workplace will push HR leaders and managers to face challenges head on while also focusing on EX and providing resources to amplify care for employees.
Employers can no longer rely on a traditional approach to their well-being programs. In order to drive real employee engagement and well-being, they must go beyond offering basic steps challenges and only physical well-being-focused programming to immerse people in a program that considers the whole person.
New Limeade Institute research furthers this sentiment by exploring key activators — or mindsets such as mindfulness, optimism, openness, purpose, gratitude and more — and how they impact overall well-being, engagement, stress levels and productivity. These mindsets also generate energy and expand our capacity to improve overall experiences and quality of life. The need for well-being programs that aim to strengthen these mindsets through intentional action and care is greater than ever before.
The need for whole-person well-being support
Embracing every employee as their unique self with a relevant and meaningful experience is crucial. We know that when companies care for employees — in every part of the EX — employees can better care for themselves, their teams and their company, leading to better people and business results. That’s why Limeade focuses on the whole person to transform work into a source of positivity, energy, humanity and purpose.
