In the ever-evolving world of HR, creating an inclusive culture that drives sustainable productivity is paramount. As I explained in my recent video, HR leaders must craft an effective employee wellbeing strategy tailored to the diverse workforce they oversee. My deep dive into this topic began with a focus on the first of the four pillars supporting this strategy: Discovery. While I touched upon the pillars of Awareness, Empowerment, and Governance, they will be covered more comprehensively in subsequent videos.
Here’s a concise breakdown of the key topics I discussed:
1. Pillars of Wellness 2016 (0:07)
- The core essence of creating a workplace culture that embodies inclusivity, sustainable productivity, and a psychologically safe space.
- Introduction to the four pillars of the wellbeing 2016 strategy.
2. Gathering Meaningful Data (1:34)
- It’s vital to gather genuine insights into how employees perceive their work environment. This can be achieved through the regular conducting of wellbeing surveys, be it post-surveys, natural surveys, or others. To get a real sense of employee sentiment throughout the year, I recommend conducting these surveys at least three times annually.
3. Translating Data into Action (2:34)
- Once data is collected, it’s about making actionable changes. While you don’t always need to involve the entire organization in each survey, extracting feedback from various groups can offer diverse insights. A significant point I stressed was the importance of exit interviews. Understanding why employees decide to leave can provide invaluable feedback. It’s not only about data collection but ensuring consistent follow-ups on surveys and acting sincerely on the insights drawn.
