There is a growing body of evidence that employee well-being and mental health is a key issue in today’s highly competitive employment market, particularly as news comes that 'The Times' stated bosses have cut staff absences by boosting well-being at work. Organisational culture and the working environment have become as important as ‘pay and rations’ to today’s talent. People understand the importance of actively managing their mental health to guard against feeling overwhelmed and burned out, and they are looking to their employers to help with this.
Following our recent post 'Well-being at work- what do people value?', Berwick Partners are now seeking to add some hard data to the debate by quantifying how today’s workforce feel about the importance of well-being provision, and in particular its effects on their career choices.
Therefore, we are delighted to be partnering with DLA Piper’s employment law team and the workplace mental health consultants InsideOut to investigate ‘the role of corporate well-being and mental health provision in employee retention and attraction’.
Together, we are running a survey to understand the levels of well-being provision made by employers, its impact on career decisions and the link with employee mental health.
Throughout March this survey will examine:
- What well-being initiatives people value.
- Whether there are any distinct variations between sectors and types of employers.
- Whether people feel there is a link between corporate well-being provision and their own mental health.
- Whether people place more importance on well-being provision at different stages of their career life cycle.
We want to hear from people at all stages of their career journey, whether you are just beginning, or are already established at board level.
All responses are anonymous unless you choose to share your story. The full report will be published online at www.berwickpartners.co.uk and all participants will receive a preview copy by email if contact details are provided. There will also be a launch event in October, held in conjunction with DLA and InsideOut, to discuss the findings.
Please email email@example.com to register your interest in attending.
All data will be kept safe and confidential and will not be used for any other purpose than talking to you about this survey.
