How to build a successful wellbeing strategy
As employee wellbeing rises up the strategic agenda, an effective strategy is a must-have. The challenge is to ensure your wellbeing strategy actually meets the needs of employees and delivers results for the business.
A European pharmaceutical business with a strong people-first ethos wanted to define what a great wellbeing strategy could look like for their business.
- We worked with our client to understand what information they had internally that could be viewed through a wellbeing lens.
- We reviewed HR statistics on absence, Occupational Health, EAP, engagement surveys and existing wellbeing initiatives to understand strengths, weaknesses and opportunities.
- We formed a view on where the client was above, below or on par with best practice and presented back to the Exco.
- We identified priorities for the client to take forward and helped ensure a coherent fit with the wider corporate vision and objectives.
- We helped the HRD and his team gain support, and budget, for a key programme of work to improve employee resilience.
- The client has a better understanding of what wellbeing strategy planning involves, what best practice could look like and where the organisation is on the journey.
- They have momentum for this journey, and have been able to get Exco buy-in to support it.
- They are able to take a data-driven approach to future planning rather than using guesswork.
- They understand where there are gaps in information and have been able to supplement these, for example via resilience surveys.
- They have been able to create a 12-month programme of work focused on closing the knowledge / capability gaps.
