Employee wellbeing has been moving further to the forefront of businesses’ health agendas since the COVID pandemic, at a rate that we have not seen before. Over the last few years, organisations and their people have been presented with unique and complex challenges. From adapting to hybrid working, navigating the cost-of-living crisis, and the impact of the ever-changing business landscape.
These challenges affect everyone in different ways, so it is important that organisations can develop and implement effective wellbeing strategies to target each unique issue as best as possible. The only way to create a truly effective wellbeing strategy is through a combination of data input and human input – going beyond the numbers when the situation requires it, and understanding how to implement meaningful change.
For the past year, Striide has been gaining insights, collating feedback and undertaking academic research into all areas of employee wellbeing. The ongoing aim is to use this data to support our members, partners and the wider business community. Mainly, to:
- Support employees to cope with times of high-pressure and possible stress and anxiety
- Reduce the likelihood of burnout
- Improve staff retention rates
- Improve staff satisfaction rates
- Improve employee mental health
- Support leaders in driving change forward
- Reduce absenteeism and presenteeism
- Improve business outcomes through better-understood and supported teams
What does the data tell us?
