In the midst of the Great Resignation, record high consumer spending, supply chain disruptions, and the emergence of new COVID variants across the United States, business management is taking on a new meaning. Clear, ongoing communication can neutralize concerns over the current and future business environment, and properly training managers to coach employees through a changing workspace can lead to better overall performance with less friction, according to Gallup.
By prioritizing wellbeing and equipping employees with the necessary skills to navigate the post-pandemic workplace, company leaders can boost innovation and morale while avoiding burnout and stress.
Wellbeing is based on five elements (career, social, financial, physical and community) that work in tandem to create thriving lives. It's no surprise that wellbeing generally dipped during the pandemic, which damaged organizations.
So, if you focus on fortifying wellbeing this year, your company can regain the wellbeing it lost, as well as a shockingly effective security system: Gallup finds that higher levels of organizational wellbeing track with lower levels of employee burnout, stress, worry, anxiety and depression -- while boosting trust, innovation and resiliency. Even engaged employees who are not thriving in their wellbeing have a higher risk of burnout.
