1. Find Your Pain Points
The first step for industry leaders to enhance organizational sustainability is to identify pain points that are prohibiting growth. Is your organization experiencing a people-centric pain with low employee engagement or retention? Perhaps it’s a positioning pain and you have low brand awareness causing a lack of sales revenue. Think about your productivity pains… are your clients satisfied? Does your supply meet the market demands? Pains within your process are often easier to spot on the day-to-day, but can be overlooked on a larger scale. These process pains could include inefficient operational workflow and lack of clarity with project scope or lead qualifications. Lastly, are you experiencing financial pains with high operating costs and low profit margins due to market saturation? Once you clarify your pain points, you have a clear direction as to what your business needs to scale.
2. Implement Best Practices
Did you know 87% of people take wellness into consideration when choosing an employer? The Global Institute of Wellness defines workplace wellness as any health promotion activity or organizational policy designed to support healthy behavior among employees and to improve health outcomes. Aerobodies suggests integrating multiple solutions into workplace policies such as offering supportive resources for fitness, nutrition, mental health, community engagement, leadership techniques, open communication, flexibility, and investments in personal and professional development. Specific programming and integration will be guided by your organizational pain points, business goals and ideal company culture.
3. Leadership Development
Integrating wellbeing into workflow practices means exemplifying a harmonious work/life balance by leaders showcasing healthy lifestyle behaviors, endorsing organizational programs, and respecting employees’ flexibility. Showing concern for employees’ wellbeing, paralleled with clear communication and opportunity for feedback, emphasizes the significance of achieving sustainable wellness. Stemming from a human-centric perspective, the most effective way to show your support of these initiatives is to lead by example with compassion and mutual respect. Aerobodies leadership management framework will help equip your leaders with the knowledge and resources for long-term practices.
4. Measuring & Tracking Wellbeing to Ensure Optimization
According to Sprout, organizations with highly effective health and productivity investments report 11% higher revenue per employee and 28% greater shareholder returns. Measurement at the individual level can be tracked through self or peer reporting, observational or physiological methods, and experience sampling. Measurement at the organizational level can be tracked through productivity performance outputs, healthcare costs, attendance and retention rates. The data measured within your organization allows business leaders to build active mental and physical resilience that shapes the workplace experience.
