Now this is interesting, keeping in mind the source is the UK-based Chartered Management Institute (http://www.managers.org.uk/)
“Employee wellbeing ‘to be measured by 2018″
According to this morning’s posting on the Institute website, employee wellness levels will soon be formally measured and reported on predicts their “Flux Report.”
The report by forecasts that three-quarters of HR directors (75 per cent) predict that employee wellness will be formally measured and reported on by 2018.
A further 60 per cent of HR directors identified employee wellness and resilience as core to enabling organisations to achieve their strategic objectives.
Over half (53 per cent) said that employees’ ability to deal with unanticipated problems is the key attribute for future business success. Despite this, 72 per cent of line managers stated that their organisation could be doing more to protect them from or help them to manage periods of persistent stress.
Jayne Carrington, managing director of Right Management Workplace Wellness, said that organisations should do more to help boost the well-being of their employees.
She added: “Employees shouldn’t be expected to make this journey on their own. Their employer has a responsibility to ensure that they have the right support structures in place to be able to manage stress and perform well. Resilience must be led from the top down if it is to be successful. Business leaders need to ‘talk the talk and walk the walk’ and ensure that this attitude trickles down to every level of the business.”
If this is the case, can North America be far behind this lead?
