With so much emphasis on mental health, we wanted to share our thoughts on the importance of promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace.
What is wellbeing in the workplace?
Wellbeing in the work place goes far beyond just minimising health issues and health-related absences. The World Health Organisation consider wellbeing at work ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing’ – so it encompasses all areas of working life. Promoting wellbeing at work can help prevent stress and create positive working environments where individuals and organisations can thrive. Good health and wellbeing can be a core enabler of employee engagement and organisational performance.
How important are your workspace surroundings?
Workspace surroundings play a significant role in productivity and overall wellbeing. Research has shown that people who work in a well-designed workspace are more productive, happier and engaged in their work. At 1 Cardale Park we don’t just consider the practicalities of a working environment, we elevate them by taking care of the wellbeing of the businesses and individuals based here. By creating a workspace with a sense of calmness and a community like nowhere else to enhance mood, motivation and performance in a relaxed and positive environment, you can expect a healthy state of mind throughout your working day.
Here are our five top tips on promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace through your surroundings:
- Provide quiet, well lit and spacious working areas with as much natural air as possible
- Furniture should be comfortable and at the right level
- There should be relaxation space away from desks and offices
- Design a combination of innovative and aesthetically pleasing décor to help boost motivation
- Create a flexible layout ensuring spaces are not cramped
