I've written a white paper 'Future of work: how to be an organisation that thrives' - to inspire organisations to support and get the best from their employees.... my research shows that focusing on and looking after your workforce is not only the right thing to do, but drives organisational success.
I conducted a survey of over 1,000 people in the UK and it revealed these alarming findings:
Half of us do not consider our level of focus or productivity at work to be good
Over half say their mental health is not good
1 in 4 have high levels of stress or anxiety
These stats are alarming both from a social point of view and in terms of the impact on organisation effectiveness and success.
In the white paper I also share areas where employees have unmet needs, as well as the opportunities that exist for employers to address them. Topics include health and well-being, work/life balance, personal development, relationships, community, culture, inclusion, diversity, contributing towards society and sustainability.
You can expect answers to these questions:
Where should organisations be focusing their energies to be best placed for a successful future?
How can organisations increase staff motivation, focus and productivity levels?
What are the benefits to organisations of focusing on the health and wellbeing of staff?
What should organisations be doing to look after their staff and to get the best out of them?
How and why should organisations contribute towards making the planet a better place?
How and why should organisations do better in the areas of diversity and inclusion?
How are organisations innovating and what inspiring case studies can be learnt from?
How have these questions been answered? By combining the survey results with findings from interviews with experts in workplace wellbeing and culture, as well as a literature review and case studies of inspiring and best in practice organisations from around the world.
The white paper is a 46-page document and it is available to purchase here.
