How Limeade Well-Being activities enable organizations to show care
By: Mady Peterson
The dramatic increase of employees working from home and many organizations moving to a hybrid model requires leaders to shift their mindset to truly care for employees — making the employee experience (EX) a top priority. From burnout and stress to absenteeism and health issues, the last few years have been filled with challenges for both employers and employees. A post-coronavirus workplace pushes HR leaders and managers to face these challenges head on, while also focusing on well-being and amplifying care for employees.
Employers can no longer rely on a traditional approach to their well-being programs. To drive real employee engagement and well-being, they must go beyond offering basic steps challenges and only physical well-being-focused programs to immerse people in a program that considers the whole person.
90% are likely to recommend their organization as a great place to work
94% are personally engaged in their work
94% have well-being in their life
56% don’t feel burned out
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.
