continue reading » Before COVID-19 hit, workplace wellness was a growing priority among credit union leaders, and now it is even more important. It’s difficult to understand the impact that workplace wellbeing, whether it is in the office or a remote work setting, has on employees. Unwell employees are neither happy nor productive.Yet our recent workplace research, published in the whitepaper, “A Study of Credit Union Workplaces and the Future of Work,” consistently revealed gaps between the importance employees assigned to various aspects of workplace wellness and how their workplace supported them. We’re going to walk you through a few takeaways from our research and show you how to take the next step towards providing a healthy working environment both in your office and at home.The majority of wellness efforts don’t deliver impressive results, and this is often due to a disconnect between what employers’ think matters to employees and what actually matters to employees. A recent study published in the Harvard Business Review reveals that the wellness perks that matter most to employees are the basic comforts, including clean air and better lighting.Poor air quality, bad lighting, distracting noise levels, too hot or too cold temperatures, and uncomfortable workstations induce both physical and mental discomfort and stress. These comforts are important to employees, yet these are the areas that employees are most dissatisfied with. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
