The link between wellbeing, culture and business performance?
Wellbeing has become much more than a nice-to-have – it is a business imperative.
Around the world, employers are united by a common challenge – a dramatic decrease in employee wellbeing. The 2021 Global Wellbeing Survey conducted by AON in partnership with IPSOS, reveals the top wellbeing risks impacting company performance:
Wellbeing isn’t just good for employees, it’s good for business. If we know that performance is driven by employee engagement and engagement is impacted by wellbeing, it makes great business sense to integrate wellbeing into our performance and culture strategies. It doesn’t matter how many wellbeing initiatives you offer if your culture isn’t supportive.
This begins with leadership. Leaders set the tone for company culture and wellbeing.
Peermont’s leaders lead the way
Being in tune with the needs of their people, the Peermont Executive team became increasingly concerned about their people’s wellbeing. The reality is, no matter how committed you are to the bigger purpose, it becomes difficult to focus on the needs of others when you yourself feel overburdened.
“We live in unprecedented times and need coping mechanisms,” said Nigel Atherton, Group Chief Executive Officer.
Peermont’s Executive team embraced this challenge as an opportunity to demonstrate their care and prioritised the implementation of a personal wellbeing programme that would build resilience and agility – personal attributes required to live the Peermont Way.
