Employees shouldn’t have to choose between work and well-being — the future of work puts employees at the center. Recent Forrester research shows that just 62% of workers feel as if their employer are willing to invest in their health and well-being. Companies have an opportunity to step up.
It’s up to organizations, managers, leaders and employees to prioritize well-being in their behaviors and throughout their everyday work. This means always considering the impact of organizational decisions such as roadmaps, product and service offerings, and human resources policies, on employee well-being. All employees have a role in creating a well-being culture that supports healthy behaviors. This culture specifically should support workplace routines and habits that include integrated well-being moments.
