a healthy work-culture IS A COMPANY LIFE-STYLE
to work better, we need to be on the edge of innovation, not the edge of exhaustion.
The workforce today is changing and their demands about how work feeds them is changing with it. The millennials are looking for companies with a healthy work culture where they can thrive and the aging workforce is looking for ways to keep up.
To have a thriving business, think thriving employees and thriving leaders. We simply cannot do our best work without self-care. We can all agree that a happy employee is the best employee. We want to grow people, but that is not just about giving them more responsibility, it is about supporting them in being able to handle it.
Is your work-culture supporting people
in doing their best work?
We need to feel safe at work to do our best work. An environment of chronic survival stress is not healthy for the individual or for the company success and instead we need to create an environment of safety so everyone can thrive.
And chronic stress affects more than our health, it affects our performance. Under stress we are driven by instinct rather than inspiration, with the result that change, creativity and innovation suffers too. Stress makes us do what we have always done, it makes us go back to old, learned, tried and true behaviors. Stress makes us stuck and it makes us in-effective.
To succeed we tend to push harder and harder to do more and more. We are trying to keep up with technology and be efficient, but the problem is that under stress we are not effective. 80% of workplace accidents and mistakes are because of stress.
Almost 50% of the workforce leave their jobs because of stress, and according to the State of the American Manager report, "Managers account for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement scores."
Stress isn't working
Companies today need to support their people in doing their best work because our human resource is still our best resource, that means giving them the tools, the permission and the corporate culture for self-care to be the foundation for fuel our day-to-day performance.
The growth and success of a company is directly connected with the health and happiness of its people. What if instead of just surviving every day, we took better care of ourselves and were able to work better, perform better and live better too?
That includes creating an environment where work-life balance is not something we do after work, it is something we do at work. It is how we work, better.
When our corporate culture is to take better care of our people, we build trust, community and care. We build a workplace of support and safety where we can do our best work. It is how we thrive, together, nourished.
