Video tutorial: Why wellbeing needs to be at the heart of your business change strategy
“There are lots of different challenges when thinking about how to embed wellbeing as part of your business strategy. Three problems: change speeds at great pace. Everything is being dealt with in siloes. The people risk is huge and that impacts your business as well,” Rae said.
Wellbeing strategies cross over with diversity and inclusion and flexibility too. “It’s so easy to lament about mental health, what we need to do is dig deeper and find out root causes. There are demographics, women are still discriminated against, ethnic minorities are, we have LGBTQ members of the team who show significantly higher incidence rate of mental distress, we have financial worries and so on. It’s worth digging down like an epidemiologist would,” said Dr Seidl.
