Feedback from our candidates has long indicated that employee well-being and mental health provision was an important factor in their career choices.
Just over 12 months ago, we set out to understand the type of well-being provision being made by organisations and its impact on employee mental health and staff retention. We did so not realising that the most significant global event for a generation was about to take place.
COVID-19 and its social and economic impact have now placed even greater significance on employee well-being, cementing its place on the leadership agenda for forward thinking organisations, adapting to the ‘new norm’
Working alongside law firm DLA Piper and workplace mental health consultants InsideOut LeaderBoard, our research survey was carried out before and during lockdown. It focused on the level of provision of corporate well-being, its impact on employees and the role of health and well-being on talent attraction, engagement and retention.
