Before we tell you all about the PepTalk solution, we've gotta touch on an important question - why should organisations focus on wellbeing in the first place?
There's no doubt that this question is only getting easier to answer!
The war for talent rages on and today's jobseekers are an enlightened bunch! They want to work for employers that offer a whole lot more than just dollar bills, like a great working environment and a real interest in their employee's health and wellbeing. It's not just about attraction - retention of amazing people is key. A 2016 survey of the Irish workforce found that 70% of Irish employees planned to change jobs that year. Could wellbeing be a missing link for lots of organisations who want to hold on to their talent?
Like most stories, there's two sides to this one - the employer's and the employees'.
What's the employees' need? Well employees lead busier lives that are more and more connected with their workplace 24x7. Like all of us, they struggle to find the time to care for their own wellbeing in the middle of the hectic comings and goings. Employers agree that more and more they have responsibility to help out on this!
