Well-Being in the Workplace

What is the state of your workforce’s well-being? The impacts of COVID including increased remote work, front-line work, job security and/or increased demands are having a significant impact on employee populations. In particular women, and, individuals with families, or pre-existing conditions. Well-being is a key factor for engagement, performance, retention, productivity, and absenteeism.

EMERGING SUCCESS FACTORS TO CONSIDER

LISTENING
Putting DEI&B front and centre within your VOE (voice of employee), VOC (voice of client/customer/candidate) ecosystems resulting in benchmarks, insights, perspectives, and trend analysis.

THE MANIFESTO
Having a manifesto that sets context, clearly articulates the ambition, strategic pillars, from>to, journey map, point of view, commitments, and accountability for DEI&B.

LEADERSHIP
It starts at the top – commitment, composition, communication, and championing.

PURPOSE, VALUES, EVP, COLLECTIVE AMBITION
Directly embedding DEI&B into the fabric of every aspect of your talent + culture narrative.

STORYTELLING
Bringing real stories to life is essential to creating emotional connections with DEI&B. Looking beyond video & podcast…  to storytelling as a leadership skill + ritual.

TOTAL REWARDS INTEGRATION
Enhanced programs to address the increase in issues related to mental, physical, and financial well-being along with practical supports like childcare. Pay equity. Incentives & rewards directly linked to DEI&B.

TALENT MANAGEMENT
Having a clearly articulated strategy for operationalizing DEI&B within the talent management process. Anonymization? Ambitious goals? Bias in tools/process?

JOB DESIGN / FUTURE OF WORK
Ensuring that job design, skills mapping, remote work, and other such factors are opening doors for DEI&B vs. creating unintended consequences.

PARTICIPATION
Workforce expectations have shifted with respect to workplace activism, helping set the agenda, and drive results. Increased internal + external engagement is critical.

INNOVATION & PERFORMANCE
Drawing the direct connection between diverse + inclusive teams with organizational performance + innovation.. Addressing both the ‘why’ – and the ‘how’.
